Today is Family Giving Day!!! 

Remember, PTCO is a 501c3 so Family Giving Qualifies for a Tax Write-off

What is Family Giving? 

As a reminder, this is not an auction year so Family Giving is our biggest PTCO fundraiser of the year!  

There are multiple ways to give! To reach our goal, we're looking to raise $275 per child.  Here are a few suggested donations: 

What does the money go towards?

  • 8 Teachers Assistant Positions: These allow additional people in the school to help our teachers, give kids extra attention, support lunch and recess, and more.
  • Teacher discretionary funds: to use in classroom: This helps ensure that teachers can support student learning without having to spend their own money. 
  • To Support field trips for every grade 
  • To Support yearly subscriptions: to apps, scholastic reading materials, and other educational enrichment resources 
  • School support and money matters grants: This budget line item provides principal discretionary funds and grant funds that teachers can request to fund initiatives to support learning.  For example, last year these funds paid to replace the speaker systems in every classroom This year so far, we have funded a new reading program materials for first grade, a diversity unit for third grade, and more request are coming in to be approved!

Splash Fundraiser - Make a Splash!


What is Splash?


Splash is a fundraising initiative where participants can give one monetary donation at the beginning of the school year to the PTCO.If you’d prefer to give to the school once a year, instead of smaller donations throughout the school year, this is the option for you! 


What are my funds used for? 


Your generous donation contributes to the PTCO fundraising efforts. Annually the PTCO uses these funds to pay for items such as Teacher Assistant Salaries, Technology including ipads and laptops, field trips, police crossing guards, and licenses for educational programs to name a few. In the inaugural year of the Splash Society, we were also able to provide a new sound system in every classroom, updated art supplies, new 3D printer and laser cutter for STEM, an increase in classroom funds for each teacher, professional development for teachers, and classroom libraries. The additional funds raised by the PTCO each year enable CHVE to add resources that make CHVE not just a great school but one of the best schools public, or private in the state. 


What does becoming a member of Splash include? 

  1. Tickets to all PTCO sponsored events-ie; Auction, Halloween Party, spring dance, etc. 
  2. VIP parking spots at school events ie: choir concerts, kindergarten graduation etc. 

Most importantly, it helps provide a sustainable fundraising source so the PTCO can continue to invest in the incredible education our kids receive at CHVE.


How do I Make a Splash? 


The minimum donation is $5000. Please note that your donation does not have to be paid all at once.  The donations can be made in lump-sum or monthly throughout the year, or as your family is comfortable.  Donate Here


Please reach out to if you have additional questions.
