THANK YOU to our community for supporting the students of Alki Elementary with your generous donations!
We originally set a GoFundMe goal of $10,000 to put a dent in the $77,000 we need to raise this year to provide staff support and resources to Alki Students. Thanks to all of the supporters who donated to this campaign so far, we are pleased to announce that we have increased our goal so that we can continue to support the students of Alki Elementary.
Due to the pandemic, we were unable to host our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Annual Auction, which raised $150k in 2019. Instead, we have asked our community for a direct give tax-deductible donation to support our school and are overjoyed with the outpouring of support!
To Our Cherished Community of Alki,
We are Community
Last March, our lives were unimaginably changed.
Around the world, not one of us unaffected. Our collective burdens were made more bearable by the kindness and goodwill we showed one another. Although we still face uncertainty, together we continue to adapt and recover. Compassion always allows our community to shine brightly. At Alki Elementary, we are so proud to be part of this incredible village.
Alki Elementary School depends on fundraising to sustain our staff structure, student support and school programming.
Our school nurse, counselor and academic interventionist are positions only partially funded by Seattle Public Schools. To continue to provide these essential pillars of support for our children throughout this school year we must raise $77,000.
Scheduled events and opportunities to raise money for these vital positions have been completely erased due to the pandemic, though the NEED for them is greater than ever. Individual and grade-level support for students and families through mental healthcare services, crisis care, family resource management, health education and intervention, one-to-one tutoring, student assessment, and development of personalized learning plans are all essential functions provided by these positions.
We are reaching out to you so that the next generation, the children of our community, will continue to receive the best education and support possible to build a better future for us all. We are asking you to please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our important cause. Your donation will allow us to fund these critical positions at Alki Elementary, giving our youth and families the tools and support needed to maintain emotional and physical health and receive the educational interventions that are necessary to continue to thrive.
Each dollar contributed makes a difference in the lives of our children! From the bottom of our collective hearts thank you for supporting our local school community.
WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER.
With love and deepest gratitude,
Alki Elementary PTA
