Donation Ask Kit

postpicsm-sfdownloadkitOur annual Spring Fling Silent Auction & Talent Show happens only once a year, and the funds raised go to teacher grants, classroom materials, field trips, curriculum events, and educational and community building programs that are FREE and accessible to all.

Our goal is to raise $15K in hopes of being able to continue these efforts.

We are reaching out to ask for help soliciting donations – the more donations we receive, the more support we can offer our school.

Asking for donations is easy! Outlines below is everything you need to get started. If you have any additional questions or need more support, let us know!

STEP 2:  Provide companies with our Spring Fling Donation Request Letter. If the company is kind enough to make a donation, please have them complete the Donation Intake Form (also included in the 2017 Donation Ask Kit).

STEP 3:  To help reduce duplicate efforts (and limit multiple donation requests to the same vendor) please let us know who you have (or will be) contacting for donations by emailing

Don’t have a printer? Don’t worry!

Many companies accept donation requests online, so all you have to do is send an email or submit their online form. We find that face to face requests (with kids in tow!) work best – simply hand them copies of the ask letter.  (Copies are available in the front office if you need them.)
