Supporting Teaching, Learning, and Community at Phineas Bates Elementary
The Phineas Bates Family Council is launching its Annual Fund Appeal.
This “Fox Fund” raises money for music, arts, technology, classroom
snacks, and more. Fox Fund helps ensure that Bates students enjoy a rich
and well-rounded education. We can only do this with your help, and respectfully ask you to donate to our Annual Appeal.
Every gift matters. Your generosity – be it $1 or $500 – will make a difference. Last year’s fundraising is already at work. Over 40 donations raised $3225 which we used to continue our Making Music Matters program. This year we have added Classroom Cantatas chorus and
purchased needed technology for classrooms. All funds we raise go directly to ensuring Bates students have the resources they need to succeed.
Our goal this year is for Fox Fund to raise $50 on behalf of each and every student at the Bates. Your donation will have a huge impact: it will ensure that all of our students benefit from music and movement, school-wide activities, and functioning technology.
There are several ways to donate:
1) Donate online at https://thephineasbates.org/foxfund/
2) Fill out the enclosed envelope with cash or check donation and send it back to school with your student.
3) Donate at any of the upcoming community events
All donations are tax-deductible and we will send you a tax receipt for your contribution. Ask your employer if they will match your contribution to Fox Fund.
Families at the Bates contribute in many ways, whether it be volunteering at events, making food for bake sales and potlucks, chaperoning field trips, or advocating for the school at BPS meetings. We hope you will join our volunteer effort to strengthen the Bates’ engaging learning environment.
Thank you for your consideration and support,
