WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT AND FUNDING, WE RISK LOSING KEY PROGRAMS AND CLASSES!
YOU CAN DOUBLE YOUR DONATION AMOUNT WITH A CORPORATE MATCH!
Here is a list of corporations that may have a matching gift program for direct donations to schools. Companies are typically approved and registered with BENEVITY. If your company is not listed, please check with your Human Resources department about your company's corporate match program. Fill out any forms supplied by your employer (or we can help you fill them out) and return to Collins PTA with your donation.
DIRECT DONATION CAMPAIGN
Collins PTA's Direct Donation Campaign raises funds needed to run and maintain key programs and instruction to benefit Collins students. We provide funding for school events and after-school programs that are not supported through the California State School Funds program.
Art and Music are integral parts of a student's well-rounded education. Due to the budget shortages in California, the Cupertino Union School District is only able to fund PE and Music for grades 4 and 5. A sizable portion of the direct donations received is spent to fund the music program for grades K to 3 as well as the art program for all students.
PTA uses the funds collected from direct donations to sponsor key programs during school hours. Here is a list of some of those programs:
- Art classes for all students
- Music classes for grades K to 3.
- Library hours from 9am to 1pm on school days.
- Field trips and transportation
- Enrichment assemblies for all students on topics such as history, animals, safety, arts, and more.
- Supplement classroom supplies for entire school.
- Science Camp and Angel Island transportation expenses for upper grades.
- Up-to-date supplies for school emergency preparedness.
- Special events such as the Holiday Party, the Fall Festival and so many others!
PTA also sponsors extracurricular programs for Collins students, such as:
We also work with school administration and teachers as needs arise to help fund various areas of technology, arts, sports, health and welfare, etc.
Our Direct Donation goal is $80,000. Help us meet our goal this year so that all students can benefit!
