Fundraising

Money raised by the PTO is used for a variety of purposes, including helping to fund the Family Center, music support, purchasing art supplies and sport equipment, technology improvements in the classrooms, and so much more. The PTO organizes fun events throughout the year to build community and raise money for our school. Have a new idea? Please share at a PTO meeting or e-mail fundraising@kennedycougarspto.org. Additional ways to raise funds for our school are listed below:

  • Direct donations – If you would like to make a donation of any size, we will put it to good use! Make your check out to Kennedy Middle School PTO and drop it into the PTO box in the school office. You may also make a donation via Paypal – just click on the donate button on the right of each page on this website!
  • Gift matching – Ask your employer if they have a matching-gift program for charitable gifts. Contact us at info@kennedycougarspto.org to arrange this.
