2015 Fall Fundraiser

Giving Tuesday– Join us in the challenge of donating $5.00 to the Norwood School PTA to support school assemblies, agendas, weekly readers, folders, reading week, family events, teacher and staff appreciation and field day. Every little bit helps! Give what you can!

This year the Norwood School PTA Fundraising Committee is trying something a little different.  

No selling items to your family, friends and coworkers!!!

The benefits of the direct donation pledge drive is that the Norwood School PTA receives 100% of the money raised and those who donate receive a tax deduction.  

There are two options for the Pledge Drive; One-time pledge or a monthly pledge.

Look how much money we could earn with monthly pledges!

  • Less Pressure –No pressuring your family, friends and coworkers.  No special trip to pick up items from school or to distribute sold items.
  • Tax BenefitsAll donations are tax-deductible.
  • Company Match for Charitable Contributions – Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program.  If they do, request a matching gift form, fill it out, and send it in.   Then just let us know when to expect the matching gift from your company.

How do I Pledge?

  1. When:   October 1st and October 16th, but of course, we will accept donations anytime of the year.
  2. Amount:  We suggest the $5.00 per month pledge or a one-time pledge of $50.00. This amount would match our goals with the traditional fundraisers of the past!of magazines, wrapping paper, candy and other merchandise. However, we will gladly accept any donation.

  4. Cash or Check Donations: Fill out the form below and then send in your cash or check donation in an envelope marked “PTA PLEDGE DRIVE.” Please make checks payable to Norwood School PTA.    You can also print the form below and send it in with your donation. * Norwood PTA reserves the right to assess a $15.00 fee for any returned checks*.

Open House/Ice Cream Social Update!

Although we’re sad our teachers are unable to attend Friday night, it’s shaping up to be an informative and fun night. We’ll have presentations by the Principal, PTA, Boys & Girls Club and more. We’ll have BCI checks available – all you need is your ID. (If you plan to volunteer at the school in any way this year, you’ll need an up-to-date BCI check and this is the easiest way to get one!) We’ll also have tours of the school, and, of course, follow it all up with Ice Cream for everyone thanks to the generosity of Newport Creamery! We have a record number of registrations this year so it will be a fantastic opportunity to meet & mingle with other Norwood families. We look forward to seeing you and your family there!
