ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN 2022-23
Beginning October 2-17, 2023
FRIENDS of Castle Heights is our school’s parent-run, volunteer fundraising group committed to strengthening our community and enhancing the academic environment for all Castle Heights students. Friends of Castle Heights must raise $370,000 to keep teachers’ aides and enrichment programs at our school this year. The Dudley Drive is the largest contributor to that effort and aims to raise 80% of the total. Our goal is for every family to participate. Please join us in making it a huge success! Our fundraising goals are based on the minimum amount needed to keep the current staffing and enrichment programs.
The suggested annual donation is $1,150 per student. Families with more than one Castle Heights student are encouraged to give a multiple of that amount (e.g., for two students = $2,300/year). Please also consider supporting the drive at a higher level if you’re able to ensure these programs continue for the entire community. We have increased our ask because a $30K annual grant that we received for the past 10 years has ended. All donation levels are in our registration form. Both monthly and one-time gift options are available. Consider asking friends and family. All donations are tax-deductible.
Every family’s donation at any amount counts. EVERY DOLLAR HELPS. Our goal is 100% participation and we ask that each family give what they can. Every class with 75% participation will earn a class-wide popsicle party! Every class with 100% participation will also earn a free cookie from Zooies! Keep Castle Heights great and donate.
EMPLOYER MATCHING! If your employer has a 501(c)(3) donation matching program, you can double the size of your gift at no cost to you - simply ask your employer. We can help complete paperwork for your employer’s program, please contact us.
I’m happy to answer any questions. We appreciate your support!
