Fundraising at MWE
At Mt. Washington Elementary, fundraising bridges the gap between the money our school needs and the money our school gets. We fundraise because we understand that the school district does not provide all the programs our teachers and administrators believe are essential to our children’s academic success. We understand that public education is not a free education. Getting involved with fundraising is a great way to meet other school families and have a positive impact on our students’ experience at MWE. We have lots of great events planned in the coming months that will be tons of fun and help raise the money we need for the programs kids and teachers love. We encourage you to be a part of it, have fun, lend a hand, and support our school! But first ...
Let’s Raise $100K by October 23, 2020!
Be on the lookout for the launch of the 2020-2021 Annual Give Challenge. The Annual Give Challenge is how we raise the majority of the funds that pay for many of the "extras" we feel are absolute necessities for the school and the students. You’ll hear lots more about this campaign in the coming weeks.
We recognize and are sensitive to the effects that COVID-19 has had on our families' financial situations. We've adjusted our approach to this vital fundraising effort and will share the details very soon. Thank you for your support!
