Granger Fall Fundraiser

Reported by allan_davenport@ipsd.org on 11/13/19

Dear Granger Parents:

For the past 10 years, Granger has participated in a fall fundraiser. This fundraiser consisted of asking students to sell magazines. This fundraiser has provided significant support for Granger and has allowed the school to offer many different opportunities for students.

As technology and our access to information continues to evolve, we know that magazine subscription rates are not what they once were. We also know that in our changing times, we don’t like the idea of students going door to door to sell magazines for the school.

Additionally, we know that managing the subscription sheets and accounting for all of the money that has to be turned in as a result of a fundraiser, can be a logistical challenge for parents and students.

After discussing the magazine fundraiser at our October PTA meeting, Granger would like to try a different, less burdensome method for students that will still raise funds to support our student programs. When discussing this idea, the PTA was very favorable of giving this a try. In lieu of a fundraiser where we ask students to sell something, we would like to provide the opportunity for Granger families to make a one-time financial donation in an amount that your family is comfortable with.

Traditionally, our magazine fundraiser would help us raise between $8000-$10,000 for Granger student activities. Monies raised through our fundraisers go directly back to our students and different student activities. For example, school assemblies, Student Council activities, student book breakfasts, Granger Gold Breakfast, author visits, and the Honor’s Breakfast are examples of how these funds are utilized.

We appreciate our Granger community and your consideration of making a donation in place of the annual magazine fundraiser. The dates for this donation opportunity will be November 13th through November 25th. On behalf of the students and staff at Granger, we thank you for all of your support!

There are two methods for which you may donate:

1. Send a check made out to Granger Middle School and in the memo line please indicate “fundraiser”. Checks can be turned in to the main office.

2. You may make a donation through Pushcoin. Please note that Pushcoin charges a 2.9% service charge and an additional .25. For example on a $20 donation there would be an additional .83 cents added. Please see the attachments or visit the Granger website for the Pushcoin directions. Also, Pushcoin would only allow us to start the donation field at $20.00, so if you would like to donate less than that, sending in a check is a better option.

Thank you, Granger families!

Thank you,
Al Davenport
