Fundraisers

Linn Grove

PTO

We know, there are so many fundraisers anymore.  Not only from school but daycare, sports, gymnastics, Boys Scouts and Girl Scouts. Every year when we sit down to decide what we are going to do for fundraising each year we think about our families.  We open this discussion up to everyone, it's not just board members who decide this.  We will start discussing this during our May PTO Meeting right before the end of the school year.


Our fundraisers are to fund all the free events we offer to our families every year and operational expenses.  You can find this under Schedule of Events above.  You can also view our budget for the current year along with past budgets under PTO Business.  Sometimes there are large items we decide to raise money for such as our Outdoor Track and Outdoor Classroom.  These are items that can not only be used by the staff and students but also sometimes by the community.


For any fundraiser you are under NO obligation to participate.  You may also write a check at anytime to the Linn Grove PTO for a donation. We have some families who would rather write a check and be done for the year, and we are happy with that approach as well.  It is what works for you and your family.


Community Fund Raisers


These fundraisers are ones at local businesses where when the Linn Grove Community goes there we get back a percentage of the sales.  

We are open to new ideas, but do try and keep them close to the Linn Grove area as ones further out do not always have a good turn out.


Here are the businesses we partnered with this year and the amount we received back.
