Fundraising Opportunities

The Vintage Hills PTA works hard to raise money to fund academic programs, field trips, and numerous improvements to the school campus. We cannot do this without your invaluable financial support. You, your children's grandparents, aunts, uncles, and/or friends can support the Vintage Hills PTA through the fundraising efforts described below. Every dollar helps! The Vintage Hills PTA is grateful for your support!

If you have any questios, please contact 
Jesse Martinez, VP Fundraising.




The impact of our individual donors cannot be overstated. If the PTA received a donation of $185 for each of our students, our basic expenses, curriculum support, and all PTA programs and special projects would be covered. Last year 100% of the proceeds from cash donations went to work immediately to help our school.

To make a one-time donation of $185, or any amount you choose, you can either:
  1.  Donate Online through Future Fund. Your Future Fund receipt can be used as your tax receipt.

  2.  Make a check payable to the Vintage Hills PTA. Please drop your check in the PTA Box located in the school office. For a tax receipt, go to our Quick Forms page.

All donations are tax deductible. 




Employer Matching Gift Programs
You may be able to double your donation to the Vintage Hills PTA. Many employers offer matching gift programs to charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees (grandparents) and spouses may also qualify for a match. To see if your company offers this benefit, check with your HR representative.

Fun Run
Ready! Set! Go! This fundraiser is held in late September. In this fun event, students collect pledge dollars from family, relatives, friends and neighbors before the event. On event day, there is a big opening ceremony open to all, and students run as many laps as they can in twenty minutes. Some students are incentivized by raising a certain amount per lap, while others collect flat amounts. Either way, our school wins!

We are always looking for corporate sponsors to step-in as event and give away sponsors for this event. If you are interested in being one of our corporate sponsors, please contact PTA President Jessica Sbragia



Scholastic Book Fairs 
Vintage Hills PTA Book Fairs are held twice a year in the Fall and in the Spring. The Book Fair is not only a great way to get our kiddos excited about reading, but also raises dollars for our school. Announcements will be made in the school newsletter or go to the Vintage Hills PTA Home page for the dates.



Spell-a-Thon
This fun and educational event gives our students a fantastic opportunity to support Vintage Hills! The Spell-a-Thon combines academic activity and fundraising. Our kids will be challenged to expand their spelling prowess, while at the same time raising funds to bolster our school’s enriched academic offerings. The students will collect pledges from their sponsors of friends, family, and/or neighbors, and then rack up dollars for each word they spell correctly during a school-wide spelling test. Sponsors can also donate a set amount.

The 2015-2016 Spell-a-Thon fundraising effort raised over $18,000 for our school! Excellent job, kids, and a huge THANK YOU to all the sponsors!!!
