Coleman PTO

Fundraising

During these unusual times, we continue to be enthusiastic about all the opportunities we've created for our students. The PTO funds all enrichment teachers for Art, PE, Technology and a portion of Music and covers all fundraising needs, including field trips, school supplies, social emotional learning consultants, and school improvements (including projectors for the coming year). Last year the PTO contributed a significant amount to extra staff for recess and lunch supervision and activities as well. Without your contributions, we would not have all these services available at Coleman.  Any amount helps, but know that your full contribution funds all of the above activities each year.  

The PTO fundraises each year for its next year's expenses.* 

While we normally ask for $600 per student, we recognize that many of us are experiencing financial challenges we could never have foreseen before COVID-19. Taking this into consideration, we have created a payment program where you can donate the amount that works best for your family - including a monthly payment option - through Donor Box. These options include $150, $300 and $600 amounts as well as an amount of your choosing. For reference, if each family gave $300 per student, that would just cover our specialist salaries (and we do not have 100% participation each year). PTO also funds school and teacher supplies, school improvements, social emotional learning and field trips among other things. Please give what you can but know that every dollar counts to make Coleman a great learning and growing place for our kids.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR DONATION:

  • PAY ONLINE (preferred!) with your debit/credit card through Donor Box at: https://donorbox.org/tiger-fund-2021-2022 
  • MAIL IN CHECK OR DROP OFF CASH to: Coleman Elementary PTO, 800 Belle Ave., San Rafael CA 94901 (“Tiger Fund” in the Memo section)

CORPORATE MATCHING: Many companies have matching gift programs for employees that may double your donation. This extra support is a BIG part of our money raised each year.  Please Contact your HR program to see if they have a matching program and add your company’s name in Donor Box for further instructions.

MORE INFORMATION: For additional information on the Annual Tiger Fund, email us at ColemanTigerFund@gmail.com. Also, if you have any questions about school funding, please reach out to Mr. Taylor, mtaylor@srcs.org or, colemanschoolpto@gmail.com.

OTHER WAYS WE FUNDRAISE:  In addition to the Tiger Fund, periodically we have online and silent auctions.  Visit the PTO website regularly so you don't miss out!  You can also participate in eScrip for Safeway shoppers, use a Coleman PTO Card for United Market, or purchase Whole Foods gift cards from the PTO. Several times a year you can also dine out with our Dine and Donate program with local restaurants.  In addition, our awesome Dad’s Club puts on several fundraising events throughout the year as well, including an annual Golf Tournament, the Crab Feed, Poker Night, and Run for the Gold.

*Please note that last year (19/20), we did not include the extra services/fundraising needs such as school supplies, field trips, etc. in our wording but the money raised last year is going to all of those services this year.  Going forward, we will include all of the above in one Tiger Fund campaign as a way of simplifying the process and making the most of your generous donations.  



¿Sabía que la ÚNICA razón por la que sus hijos reciben Arte, Educación Física, Música y Tecnología en Coleman es porque los padres recaudan el dinero para esas clases y sus maestros a través del PTO? El personal de Coleman, el PTO y el liderazgo creen en la enseñanza integral del niño y, para lograrlo, necesitamos su apoyo.

Aunque pedimos $600 por cada estudiante, reconocemos que muchos de nosotros estamos experimentando desafíos financieros que nunca podríamos haber previsto antes del COVID-19. Teniendo esto en cuenta, hemos creado un programa de pago en el que puede donar la cantidad que mejor funcione para su familia, incluida una opción de pago mensual, a través de Donor Box. $150, $300 u otras cantidades están perfectamente bien también. Para poder ver esos niveles, deberá donar en línea (ver más abajo).

CÓMO HACER TU DONACIÓN:

  • PAGUE EN LÍNEA (¡preferido!) Con su tarjeta de débito / crédito a través de Donor Box en: https://donorbox.org/tiger-fund-2021-2022 
  • ENVÍE EL CHEQUE POR CORREO O ENTREGA EL EFECTIVO a: Coleman Elementary PTO, 800 Belle Ave., San Rafael CA 94901 (“Tiger Fund” en la sección de Memo)

EMPAREJAMIENTO CORPORATIVO: Muchas empresas tienen programas de regalo complementario para empleados que pueden duplicar su donación. Este apoyo adicional es una GRAN parte de nuestro dinero recaudado cada año. Comuníquese con su programa de recursos humanos para ver si tienen un programa de correspondencia y agregue el nombre de su empresa en el cuadro de donantes para obtener más instrucciones.

OTROS MANERAS RECAUDAR FONDOS: Además del Tiger Fund, periódicamente tenemos subastas en línea y silenciosas. ¡Visite el sitio web del PTO con regularidad para que no se lo pierda! También puede participar en eScrip para compradores de Safeway, usar una tarjeta Coleman PTO para United Market o comprar tarjetas de regalo de Whole Foods en PTO. Varias veces al año también puede salir a cenar con nuestro programa Dine and Donate con restaurantes locales. Además, nuestro increíble Dad's Club organiza varios eventos de recaudación de fondos durante todo el año, incluido un Torneo de golf anual, Crab Feed, Poker Night y Run for the Gold.

MÁS INFORMACIÓN: Para obtener información adicional sobre el Fondo Anual del Tigre, envíenos un correo electrónico a ColemanTigerFund@gmail.com. Además, si tiene alguna pregunta sobre la financiación escolar, comuníquese con el Sr. Taylor a mtaylor@srcs.org o colemanschoolpto@gmail.com.
