The PTA funds an important array of enriching programs and events that benefit our children, school, and community. Due to the circumstances related to COVID-19, the Woodburn PTA is decreasing our budget and decided to forego multiple fundraisers in favor of a Direct Donation Fundraising Campaign.
This campaign is the PTA’s primary fundraiser and requests a one-time monetary donation rather than asking our community to sell items. The only other fundraisers planned for the year are spirit wear, limited restaurant take-out nights, and passive fundraising (e.g. Amazon Smile or Box Tops). Direct donations allow 100% of contributions to go directly to the PTA and are tax-deductible. If you make a donation, we will add your name to the PTA Wall of Fame on our website. Different level pledges come with some perks. You will also receive a letter for tax purposes.
Our goal is to raise $12,000 to support PTA programming.
