Thank You! Direct Give Raises $27,150

Direct GiveThanks to a record number of donors this year, The Pathfinder PTSA Direct Give raised $27,150, exceeding its goal of $25,000 by more than $2,000! This is great news, and we will be able to put this money right to work funding  academic priorities like tutoring and creative approach, valuable hands-on work in the Pathfinder garden, and fun community events for the kids and their families.

We couldn’t do this without the strong support of the Pathfinder community — 155 parents, teachers, administrators, and extended families members donated to the campaign. You’re the best!

Direct Give was the first of three main fundraisers this year. One of our favorites, Wreaths, is just around the corner. The Wreath fundraiser helps defray the cost of camping and outdoor education and allows us to unleash our creativity in making and selling holiday wreaths.

The biggest fundraiser is Pathfinder’s annual Auction. This year, the Auction is on Saturday, March 3. Funds raised at the auction make up the bulk of the PTSA’s revenue each year. Mark your calendars for what promises to be a very entertaining night!

There are also easy ways to raise money for Pathfinder just by going about your daily shopping.
