Ottervest Campaign

 

The Creekside PTA works to enrich and enhance the educational environment of all our Creekside Elementary students. “Ottervest” will be Creekside’s largest fundraiser of the year. We are asking families to contribute directly to our school instead of selling wrapping paper or cookie dough, so that 100% of your donation will go directly to our school. The “Ottervest” campaign will run through September 20, but donations are welcome any time during the year.

 

Our goal this year is to raise $55,000 through this campaign. As a guideline we ask that each family consider donating $150 per student or $300 per family. Please know that any amount, more or less, that you feel comfortable giving will be greatly appreciated. All donations are tax deductible. Also, many companies provide matching donations. Please ask if your company has a matching gift program for donations. You can find a list of companies that participate below or on our website.

 

The money that we raise through this campaign will be used to fund shade structures on our new playground with an approximate cost of $35,000 and a full-size outdoor basketball court with an approximate cost of $20,000. By meeting this goal, we can fund both projects.

 

Thank you very much for your continued support,

 

Creekside PTA

Corporate Matching Programs 

 

DOUBLE YOUR DONATION!

 

Creekside Elementary PTA is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This means there is a good chance your employer will match your donation made to CSE PTA. There are many companies, large and small, that match donations to non-profit organizations. The following are just a few of the companies in our area that have “matching” programs for their employees:

 

Abbott Pharmaceuticals

Aon Healthcare

Aspect Software

AT&T

Bank of America

Baxter

Bridgestone/Firestone

CA Technologies

Caterpillar Financial Service

Cigna

Dell Corporation

Fidelity Investments

First Tennessee Bank

Gartner

GE

Johnson & Johnson

Microsoft Corporation

Nissan

Oracle Corporation

Pfizer

Regions Bank

Salesforce

State Farm

The Tennessean

Turner Construction Company

Please take the time to check with your employer’s HR or Benefits department and verify if they offer a matching program. If they do, they typically have a form you would submit to the PTA with your “Ottervest” contribution, or they may use a paperless process that you start on-line.

 

If you have already made your “Ottervest” donation, it is NOT too late to secure the employer matching contribution. Simply turn in your company form to the PTO with a note.
