Fundraising FAQ

Do I have to participate in all of the fundraising events?

We hope for all families to support fundraisers as much as they can.  Some families feel strongly about certain fundraisers and put most of their efforts towards just a few fundraisers.

What is the benefit of participating in the fundraising events?

By supporting our school-wide efforts, you support student learning. Whether contributing to our Tuition Assistance program or donating to our school’s general operations – your support helps our school and students thrive.

Can I suggest other fundraising events to the school?

Absolutely, we are open to new suggestions. Contact the PTG president to ask for time on the agenda at the monthly meeting. We are always looking for fresh ideas.

What is the Annual Auction all about?

The auction event is an evening of fun and excitement. The auction committee has arranged for donated items to be given to the school to sell. The profit on the item goes to the school towards the fundraising goals. At this event, you bid on items to purchase at great prices against your community members. It is a great opportunity to bring the whole community together in support of SJMV!
