    Annual Giving Campaign  


    The Annual Giving Campaign (AGC) is the Whitman PTSA’s largest fundraiser and provides up to half of our yearly budget. Your tax deductible donations support programs and community events for all Whitman students. The AGC is the simplest, most direct way for you to support Whitman. You can contribute by check, cash, or credit card, and if your company has a matching program, you can make your donation go even further. 

    We all know the importance of working together to improve our public schools. Each Fall, the Whitman PTSA asks our community to join in addressing this need through the Annual Giving Campaign (AGC), a direct appeal designed to provide funding for teacher and principal identified needs for academic support and enhancements at our school. 

    The money we raise for this year’s AGC will be spent during the 2020-21 school year, with your dollars directly benefiting current Whitman students. Many families gave generously last year, with gifts ranging from $10 to $200 and above. While we know large gifts are not possible for everyone, we hope that all families will give something, as all donations—no matter how big or small—benefit our students and our school.  

    Last year’s AGC donations helped keep our library materials up-to-date, let us make technology purchases, funded building improvements and provided classroom materials and professional development for our teachers. This year, we will once again use AGC dollars to quickly and flexibly address student and staff needs as they arise. Even though our students are not in the building, the needs for enhancing and enriching the learning experience have not changed. 

    Our AGC goal this year is to raise $35,000 between October. 1 and October 30. The money we raise  will be spent during this school year, with donor dollars directly benefiting current Whitman students. This ability to spend AGC dollars quickly and flexibly means that we can address student and staff needs as they arise over the course of the year and adapt to changing curriculum requirements.
