Fundraising

Become a Pointers Paw Patron!

The Pointers Paw Patron Program is an education fund drive designed to help defray the cost of the many activities and programs sponsored and run by the PRES PTA.  We have heard from many families that they prefer writing one check to support their children instead of participating in other fundraisers. Therefore, in addition to your membership dues, we are asking families for a minimum donation of $40 per child to support our kids and maintain our current level of programming.  The best part is 100% of your money stays at PRES, your donation is tax-deductible, and you don’t have to sell anything!

You can donate by sending a check to school made out to “PRES PTA” or by PayPal here.  Keep in mind, many companies offer a Corporate Match for charitable donations meaning your $40 donation becomes $80 for PRES!
