The Dolphin Pledge Drive Is So Close!

We’ll be drawing the name of the Disneyland Park Hopper passes this week at Friday Flag! Be there so you can cross your fingers while you hope to win! They say that it’s a very effective technique.

We are so close to meeting our goal! The Dolphin Pledge Drive has raised $17,231 and we are very excited to be this far along so soon after the start of the school year. We are very grateful for the generosity of everyone who has contributed to this major fundraiser. Don’t forget to claim your donation on your tax forms this year! And if you wanted to donate but haven’t been able to yet, we gladly accept pledge donations all year long.

The Dailard School Foundation spends about $260 per student, and we do not sell wrapping paper or cookie dough to earn that money. We rely solely on what our parents and other members of the Dailard community can contribute for our students. A contribution of $180 to the Pledge Drive–and we accept contributions all year long!–and of $80 to the Jog-a-thon (our biggest single fundraiser) would cover materials and education and subject matter expertise and STEM enrichment and visual arts for your child for a whole year. If you can afford to be generous and donate more than that, there are many other children at this school who would appreciate it. If you cannot afford $260, any amount is appreciated. Donations to the Dolphin Pledge Drive are fully tax-deductible.
