2017 Direct Give Campaign

Welcome to the annual STEM K-8 Direct Give Campaign, our first fundraiser of the year. During October we aim raise $35,000 to support the STEM community.


The STEM K-8 PTA serves as the roots of the STEM community and supports funding for every aspect of our unique school. State and local funding is terribly inadequate to support the vision of our school and provide the level of services, support, and materials we need for all of our students.

With the support of families and local businesses, STEM K-8 PTA has enriched the baseline curriculum by investing in technology, art, literacy, engineering, Project Based Learning, playground equipment, science fair projects, scholarships, emergency equipment, teacher training, field trips, and community events. It’s only with your financial support that STEM K-8 PTA can continue to create opportunities for every student.

Our goal is $35,000.

The Direct Give Campaign ensures that each dollar you donate goes directly to the school. Each donation is tax deductible, and many employers will match donations, increasing your gift to our school and community.
The PTA invites everyone in our community (including friends, neighbors and relatives) to give what they can today.
