This is a give-what-you-can fundraiser, but we’re encouraging families to give $25 or more. With more than 700 students at Jones, we’d reach our fundraising goal (and then some) if we raised $25 for each student. That’s less than a dollar for each week of school, and your child benefits directly from the programs paid for by PTA money.
The money raised by the PTA pays for teacher grants, schoolwide assemblies, purchasing equipment and school supplies. In the past few years, we’ve bought musical instruments, a security system and a deep cleaning for the entire school. This year, we’d love to help buy additional Epson smartboards (which cost more than $3,000 each) for Jones classrooms.
You can send cash or check (payable to Jones PTA) to school this form.
And this year, you could win a prize!
We have some great donated prizes that we’re giving away to Jagathon contributors who donate at least $25. If you give $25, your name will be put in a raffle to possibly win …
- A family four pack of UNCG basketball tickets
- Gift cards to local stores or restaurants ($50 at Bonefish Grill; $30 at Walmart)
- Our grand prize, a 32 GB gold iPad (kindly donated by a generous parent)
Donate more and you’ll get more chances to win. We’ll put in an extra ticket for each additional $25 increment that you donate. Give $50, get 2 tickets in the raffle. Give $75, earn 3 tickets and so on.
*We’ll hold the drawing for prizes the week after our fundraiser deadline, which is Friday, Oct. 26. You do not need to be present at the drawing to win.
**Do you own, work at or have connections to a business that would donate to our raffle? We’d love to have gifts, products, services, tickets or gift cards/gift certificates to local attractions and restaurants. If you’d be able to donate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
