DODD PTA FUNDRAISING PROGRAMS

The Dodd School PTA does not participate in any fundraising programs at this time, other than the optional 8th grade field trip fundraiser. We are able to fund our PTA programs through the PTA membership dues from our Dodd parents. These membership dues enable us to fund our PTA operational budget and sponsor social and cultural events throughout the year.

But there are other ways we are asking you to help. Please save your Box Tops for Education, which your child can bring in and drop off in the office at any time. Additionally, Please take a moment to register your Stop and Shop courtesy card for the “A+ Program” at www.stopandshop.com. Each time you shop points accumulate and Dodd will receive $$ for these points at the end of the program, which starts in October and ends in March. These are two effortless ways to help the PTA raise money to support all the important programs and activities we offer.

8th Grade Washington Fundraiser:

Eighth grade students going on the Washington DC trip may choose to participate in an optional fundraiser to help students raise money to defray the costs of the their trip. The 8th grade fundraiser is administered by the PTA, but all the proceeds (fundraising earnings) will be applied directly to the student’s bill for the trip. The PTA does not profit from this fundraiser. The Jeannine Fundraising was successful and collectively raised over $31,000 for this school year.

Donations:

The Dodd PTA is considered an educational nonprofit [section 501(c)(3)] organization by the IRS. Parents may desire to make a tax-deductible donation to our PTA. The Dodd PTA also participates in the United Way Campaign. Parents can designate the Dodd Middle School PTA to receive their United Way contributions. Dodd families whose employers sponsor “donation matching fund” programs may also designate the Dodd Middle School PTA to receive these fund donations. 100% of these donations go directly to the Dodd PTA and are greatly appreciated. Please contact our PTA Treasurer if you would like to make a donation to the Dodd Middle School PTA.
