Whitman Middle School PTSA is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports Whitman’s students, families, and staff.
The money we raise each year is used to provide direct support through items such as library books and resources, technology improvements, classroom materials as well as the Curriculum Enrichment Fund (CEF) to help advance the SPS Continuous School Improvement Plan (C-SIP). We also sponsor school-wide community events like our annual potluck, STEAM Nights, and guest speakers. PTSA funds raised this year will provide educational investments that benefit all grade and learning levels at WMS during this school year.
We have three main sources of revenue, and the descriptions are below:

Annual Giving Campaign (AGC): The AGC runs during the month of October and is the major fundraiser of the year. Dollars raised from the AGC will help fund staff-identified needs throughout the current school year, providing critical support for Whitman programs. This year’s AGC goal is $35,000, and every dollar makes a difference. Please visit our AGC website at https://whitmanms.ejoinme.org/agc and donate today!
Whitman Auction: Typically, this casual adults-only silent & live auction evening brings together parents, community members, and Whitman staff for socializing, fun, and dancing — all while raising funds to benefit our students. Due to COVID 19 restrictions, the 2021 auction is going Virtual! We will have a fun online program on Saturday, Feb. 6th and will be accepting donations HERE through the month of February. Email email@example.com .
Passive Fundraising: Little effort, great results! Merchants donate funds to support our students when you shop locally and/or online — at places you already visit. This year we hope to raise at least $2100 through passive fundraising. Please take a minute to read through the simple list of options here and learn about our passive fundraising programs. I look forward to a terrific year supporting our Wildcats together. If you have any questions or would like to help with Whitman’s fundraising efforts, please feel free to contact me.
