Thank You for Supporting the Hayhurst PTA

Donate to help us support our students, teachers, staff, and community! You can now donate to the PTA by credit card either as a one-time payment or as a recurring, monthly donation. Thanks again for your help, it all adds up.

Make a One-Time Donation

Find the suggested donation for PTA sponsored school supplies, field trips, events, enrichment programs, and more. Donate the suggested amount or as much as you can. You don’t have to be a parent/guardian to donate.

Set Up a Monthly Donation

If you’d like to make a recurring monthly donation instead of, or in addition to, the single payment option, use this option. It only takes a few click.

Featured Fundraiser: I 💙 My Hayhurst Huskies Campaign

 

The PTA provides all school supplies for all Hayhurst students. These supplies are waiting for the kids on their first day of school and are kept stocked throughout the year. The PTA also pays for field trips for all, for classroom enrichment, for the Food Bags program, and more. We invite parents/guardians to donate to help cover these costs.

The PTA expense per student in 2021-22 is about $170. School supplies alone cost about $25 per student for the year. You can donate as little as $10 and as high as however much you want. Please keep in mind that not all Hayhurst families can donate, especially in these trying times.

If for your household the P-EBT card that was mailed to your students over the summer offers extra funds, consider donating some of these funds to the PTA.

Pick a Fundraiser That Works for You

While we try to limit the number of fundraising activities we take on every year, we do have quite a few. That’s because we’re catering to the needs of different community members. And, since we’re not a “rich school”—In fact, we have quite a few families that need our support—we have to allow more people to participate in fundraising.

We know that some of us would rather set up a donation once a year and then forget about all the runs, sales, and whatever else we have going on. If that’s you, head over to our annual donation form, and set up your donation now. Then, when you know you’ve done your share, ignore additional calls for support that don’t fit you. They’re there for somebody else.

If, on the other hand, you can only manage so much at the beginning of the year, say cover school supplies, or maybe school supplies and field trips, we get it! Donate as much as you can through direct give, and keep an eye out for future fundraisers to see if you can help some more.

If Direct Give Isn’t for You, Consider These Options

Help the school and the PTA while getting stuff you’d get anyway

like when you buy books at the book fairs or flowers at the flower sales, get dinner at a restaurant night, buy holiday gifts and other items at the auction. Plus, there’s AmazonSmile and Fred Meyer’s Community Rewards where you really just need to sign up.

Take part in fundraisers that bring our community together

Like the restaurant nights, when we do them live, and the runs, in a way, especially for those volunteering and cheering. Plus, before all this Covid stuff, the live auction used to bring many of us together without kids to distract us, maybe we’ll get to do that again at some point.

Get your family, friends, and neighbors to support the PTA

Getting people to sponsor your student for the runs is one way. Inviting family, friends, and neighbors to buy flowers at our flower sales is another. $50 collected from five people is still $50 that the PTA wouldn’t have had if you or your kiddos haven’t gone around to get people to donate.

We Could Use Your Help

Volunteers Needed

We are always looking for volunteers to help carry the fundraising effort at Hayhurst. There are so many great ideas and initiatives, but we’re all busy with everything else. The more people show up to help the less work falls on each of us. We’ve done so much for our school community over the years, it’s been fun. Get in touch to see how you can help.
