PARENT & COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS

FUNDRAISING at DIAMOND PATH

Diamond Path School and the Diamond Path PTO participate in, and sponsor, a wide variety of fundraisers throughout the school year. 99% of the dollars raised throughout a school year are immediately reinvested in Diamond Path students and the Diamond Path school.


Visit the Volunteer Coordinator's web page for information on volunteering at Diamond Path.


Listed below are some of the many ways in which the Diamond Path PTO, staff, and Diamond Path community, participate in raising dollars for our school.


TAKE CHARGE OF EDUCATION

If you have a Target Visa card, you can designate Diamond Path as your target school. From then on, everytime you use your Target RedCard and Target Visa, Target donates a percentage of your purchase to Diamond Path. (Donations total 1% of your purchases at Target and Target.com and 1/2% of Target Visa Credit Card purchases made everywhere Visa credit cards are accepted.)

It's easy to participate. Click the Take Charge of Education (TCoE) link below and follow the instructions under the "Find a School" link, or call 1-800-316-6142, or visit your local Target store.

Over the past ten years we have received approximately $25,000! These unrestricted funds can be used for playgrounds, books, and more.

Grandparents, alumni, neighbors and friends can take part. Join us in this program of giving back.

Visit the Target TCoE web site for more details.


BOOKFAIR at Barnes & Noble

The date for the fall 2013 Barnes & Noble BOOKFAIR is December 18, 2013 from 4:00 - 8:00.


Fall Fundraiser

The Fall Fundraiser kicks off every fall in mid to late September. The Fall Fundraiser is our largest fundraising vehicle and brings in 50% of the funds in the PTO's annual budget.

This year's kick-off date will be announced in September.


Family Fun Fest

The Family Fun Fest is Diamond Path's second largest fundraiser and takes place in April. However, it's not just a fundraiser, it's a community event. It's an evening of fun, games, food, and entertainment for everyone!
