 PTA Fundraising Help Support FS Key

Welcome to an exciting new school year at Francis Scott Key!  One of the things that make FS Key such a great place is the total family involvement in the school.  Everyone gets into the spirit by participating in a variety of different annual fund-raisers held to benefit our amazing community. Whether you prefer to participate by volunteering your time, or by contributing money, goods or services, there is something that everyone can do and we need all the help we can get, so please get involved! Fundraising is critical to fund PTA-sponsored programs and events including: Art in Action, Science Sacks, Teacher Stipends, the School Garden, Movie Night, the Halloween Pumpkin Patch, and Family Arts/Fun Day. Read below to learn about our fundraising opportunities and how you can participate.

Fundraising Drives and Events:

Membership DriveAt the beginning of each year Fundraising partners with Membership to encourage parents to join the Francis Scott Key PTA or to renew their membership for 2016-2017. 
Every membership helps.  Join here.

Direct Donation: Fundraising Committee sends out an Annual Direct Donation letter to all the parents of enrolled students in the Fall of each school year.  For the school year of 2016-2017, we are asking for a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation of $125 per student (or $12.50 per month during the school year) or $200 per family (if you have more than one kid in FSK) to help us fund those programs!  Please choose a donation amount that fits your family’s finances and know that every dollar makes a difference! Every donation is important, valued and appreciated and every student will benefit!  This is our second largest sources of fund for our school and will ensure that all the important programs sponsored by the PTA at our school is fully funded and secure through the year! 

Corporate Matching: Many companies offer a corporate matching program to give back to your favorite non-profits. This match will ensure that your donation to FSK is doubled.  Inquire with your HR department about corporate matching availability at your company.  For more information about Corporate Matching, click here.

Gala & Auction (and Kids party)Save the date!  Our next Gala and Silent Auction will be on April 15th, 2017.  More information will be forthcoming!
