Enatai PTSA raises money all year to replenish the funds PTSA will contribute this year to the Enatai Elementary school community. 

In the 2017-2018 school year, Enatai PTSA contributed $170,000 toward enrichment of Enatai students, staff, and the greater school community. For the 2018-2019 school year, Enatai PTSA plans to contribute $180,000 towards the same enrichment.

If no funds are raised this year, the 2019-2020 school year will not be able to allocate at this same level of contribution.

Alternatively, all funds raised this year will allow 2019-2020 the same level of contribution as this year AND potentially contribute to the 2020-2021 school year!

The purpose of fundraising is three-fold:

- Replenish funds being used in the current year
- Fund new project ideas and fulfill immediate needs
- Maintain the 30+ programs, community events, and financial support that have built a strong school community

Yearly Fundraising Timeline

The Enatai PTSA’s Most Effective Fundraising strategy:

- Read-a-thon in the Fall
- A Gala Fundraiser in the Winter
- Jog-a-thon in the Spring

When all three of these fundraisers are effectively planned by an interested and committed parent, fundraising goals are easily achieved.

We need you! We need parents interested in participating as well as parents interested in running these events.

EVERY year we recruit capable and competent volunteers to support these events.

In years that we don’t have support for the event, the event is cancelled. Consequently, funding and fundraising are impacted for that year and future years.

2018-2019 School Year – All fundraisers are being organized!

  • Thank you to Sarah Bryan for organizing Read-a-thon!
  • Thank you to Grace Hackerman & Lacie Bower for organizing a Winter Gala!
  • Thank you to Jesse Pacem for organizing Jog-a-thon!

What does all this mean?

Please contribute your time and skills to one of these events this year!
- Please consider contributing your time and skills to one of these events NEXT year!
- Please consider CHAIRING one of these events NEXT year!
- 2019-2020 will, most likely, be fully reserved at current allocation levels
- 2020-2021 will, most likely, be contributed to!
