WHAT IS DIRECT DONATION
The DEPTA Direct Donation Drive offers a convenient way to raise money in lieu of countless PTA fundraisers throughout the school year (think wrapping paper, candles, chocolate bars...). It can be given at any time during the school year and in any amount.
WHY DO WE NEED TO RAISE MONEY? I THOUGHT MY TAXES PAID FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION?
Federal Title 1 grant monies go to schools where at least 50% of the students come from families living at or below the poverty level. Double Eagle is part of the roughly 25% of APS elementary schools that do not qualitfy for these grants. Furthermore, the property taxes as well as state and local taxes we pay do not necessarily stay in our geographical area. Instead, they are distributed throughout the entire city with priority going to those schools in greatest need.
HOW WILL MY DONATION BE USED?
Your donation will help support a reading specialist, curriculum enhancement (art, music or technology), onsite computer tech specialist, classroom, workroom and PE supplies as well as much more NOT funded by APS, state or federal Title 1 grants.
HOW CAN I MAKE A DONATION?
You can make a donation below or of course you can always bring in a check. We recommend a $200 donation per child.
HOW CAN I MULTIPLY MY DONATION?
Many companies offer a corporate matching gifts or funds program as a way to help their employees double their donations. Please inquire with your employer's HR department to see if they participate.
