Last year the PTC was successful in raising almost $35,000.00 to enhance our students’ learning experience and directly support NECS classrooms. The PTC minimizes the ‘ask’ of parents, by holding a couple of large, focused fundraisers throughout the year, and spending more of our time giving back!
The Annual Obstacle Fun Run
The 2019 Fun Run Raised over $32,000!
Thank you to all who participated! The PTC has found this fundraising event to be not only lucrative, but community building within our school as it involves the participation of the entire student body. Leading up to the Fun Run students procure sponsorships from friends, family, and businesses for their participation in an Obstacle Course. Held on lower campus during the school day, class by class students run the course that has included inflatables, tires, tubes, and more.
As far as event based fundraisers go, the Fun Run has a lower cost of operations and less man-hours required than fundraisers such as dinner auctions and carnivals, but more importantly, students experience involvement and achievement.
The Giving Campaign is a simple and straightforward fundraiser in which families simply donate directly to the PTC without any further obligation to sell, buy, or participate! Donations can be made anytime throughout the year, however, there are a couple of targeted giving dates that will be promoted.
Donations can be made by check or cash and given to your child’s teacher with this form [ link to pdf ], or on this website by clicking the "Donate" Icon on the header or footer of each page.
The PTC counts on the generosity of many local businesses for financial support. Last year alone business sponsorships for the Fun Run totaled over $8,000.00, along with valuable non-monetary donations of products and services. There are varying levels of sponsorship that businesses can choose from, all of which offer business promotion to NECS families, including (new for the 2019-2020 school year) a Business Sponsor Guide that all families receive. Gold Sponsors have a banner displayed at pick up for the entire school year! NECS families are encouraged to use sponsoring businesses when in need of goods or services.
