Fundraisers and Fundraising


Fundraising and Fundraisers

Why is fundraising so important??

 At Richard Gordon, we fundraise throughout the school year with a variety of activities meant to appeal to most.  Some of the fundraisers are relatively simple, such as selling Flower Bulbs, or more student oriented, such as collecting Boxtops, or the Read-a-thon. Others may be more work and adult focused, such as the Auction. Whatever they are, the fundraisers all matter greatly. Whatever funds are raised during this school year sets the budget for the next school year.  So with this, we are perpetually working forward to ensure budget needs are met!

 Did you know?

The PTA (you and I) sponsor MANY of  programs and activities at Richard Gordon. This includes Passport Club, STEAM nights (science, technology, engineering and math), School Assemblies, Field Day, Online math and reading programs, Family Fun Nights, Family Movie Nights, Fall Carnival, Project Linus, and Fifth Grade Graduation, to name a few (!). We work hard with the fundraising to ensure that these activities may continue. The support of our fundraising efforts is integral for our children at Richard Gordon Elementary School.

To be sensitive- if funds are tight- as we can all appreciate- volunteer your time as you are able, in lieu of the money. Your time and energy are also an invaluable resource at Richard Gordon Elementary School.
