Be A Hero 2018

Oct 18, 2018 | Events

UPDATE: Thanks to our wonderful community, we reached (and even surpassed) our Be A Hero fundraising goal for 2018. You are our heroes!  ¡Mil gracias! 


Be A Hero 2018 Is On!

Be A Hero is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This is when we raise most of the money for the wonderful programs the PTA supports. From our library and teachers to bringing Arts and Music into the classroom, the PTA is here to support and nurture all of our children.

Our goal this year is to raise $85,000 by December 31st.

Please help us reach our goal. Use the buttons below to donate online via Facebook or PayPal. (We prefer Facebook, because PayPal takes a cut.) You can also write a check payable to Fairmount Elementary PTA or give cash. There’s a white box labelled PTA just outside the school office where you can drop off your donation.

And please find out if your employer will match your donation. Corporate matching is a big part of a Be A Hero, and we don’t want to miss out on any dollars. If you have any questions or know your employer matches, please contact Ericka asap:

Thank you for supporting our wonderful school!
