Welcome to the new school year! Falcon Drive begins August 24th! This is Foster City School PTA's annual direct donation and volunteer commitment drive. It is the primary fundraiser for the PTA and is your main chance to contribute to the many programs planned for this year, such as continued funding of library and computer lab staff, technology, educational and social enrichment programs, teacher/classroom support, and so much more!
The PTA supports essential and enriching programs at Foster City School, and seeks 100% participation from the school community to raise at least $250 per student. The PTA’s programs are implemented through the support of many, many wonderful volunteers. It takes approximately 10,000 volunteer hours a year to run these programs, and so we ask you to pledge at least 10 hours of volunteer time per child. Your monetary contribution and volunteer time directly benefit the students of Foster City School as shown below:
Many companies in the Bay Area match 100% of their employee's charitable donations. Please inquire at your company’s website or HR department to find out if your employer will match your donation to the PTA. If your employer potentially matches your $250 donation, this could result in a $500 donated to the PTA! Refer to the Falcon Drive packet that was attached to Falcon Drive envelope for more information.
In order to ensure collection for corporate match, for those who have submitted corporate match pledges, it is very important that you follow up with your employer to submit any necessary paperwork and/or contact Jessica Agte at corpmatchFCE@gmail.com if you need a receipt or have any questions.
