Support your child's education 
this year 
Please donate

(Suggested donation is $200 per child or whatever you can give to help us achieve 100% participation)


As we continue to expect more budget cuts at the state level, we rely on your generous donations to fun needed programs at Douglass and offset future reductions.

Every Fall, the Douglass PTO raises money to support our children’s education. These donations go directly into your child’s classroom the year they are received. This year our goal is $80,500.00.




Here are some examples of how your money is used to support our school:
  • Literacy support – providing paraprofessionals and/or tutors 3x/week in each classroom to assist in literacy instruction and curriculum while focusing on smaller group interactions.
  • Technology enhancements for classrooms
  • Enrichment programs such as guest speakers and educational seminars
  • Upgrades to learning supplies and organizational materials

D2E Fundraising Goals

How much should I give?

Show your dedication to your child’s education and support his or her classroom this year by donating $200 per child, or a lump sum of your choice, or whatever you can give to help us achieve 100% participation. We want to emphasize that all donations (in any amount) are appreciated. Every family at Douglass is encouraged to give what they can.  Incremental donations to the D2E campaign are also welcome.  Simply pay in multiple increments via Paypal or send in multiple checks at your convenience during the D2E campaign.

At $200 per child, that is about $1 per day your child is in school this year!

And, if you can provide a “scholarship” for another Douglass student in need, please let us know.

Whether your child is in kindergarten, 5th grade, or somewhere in between, our goal is 100% participation. Full participation indicates a strong sense of purpose and a true dedication to our school community and your child’s classroom.
