Direct Donation Campaign

Generosity Shines Bright is a Direct Donation Campaign for Paton School. Each year, the PTO raises funds for essential curriculum programs and materials that are not included in the town’s budget, such as online learning tools, onsite enrichment presentations, classroom supplies, subscriptions, and class field trips.

Additionally, the PTO maintains the Paton playground, funds teacher appreciation initiatives, and organizes community-centered events. This year, we will also be finishing the Paton Mural Project and making improvements to the outdoor academe space, including an outdoor classroom area and lighthouse repairs.

As we assess this school year’s needs, including the return of class field trips, we are reaching out to ask for your support of the Generosity Shines Bright campaign. This direct donation approach allows us to forgo traditional fundraisers, like bake, magazine or wrapping paper sales, and assures that 100% of the money raised goes DIRECTLY to Paton School. It also eliminates the need for additional “asks” throughout the school year.

Our goal for this year’s campaign is $8,000. There are two easy ways to donate: Venmo (@WalterJPatonPTO) or a personal check (made out to Paton PTO) sent to the school in your child’s red folder.

We know that both kindness AND generosity shine bright at Paton School. We also greatly understand the financial demands on families today and appreciate your consideration and any support that you can give.
