Fall Fundraiser Update

Edgewood Parents and Teachers (EPAT) is conducting a direct donation fundraiser, which means that every dollar donated goes back into supporting our incredible students. The money raised through this fundraiser directly impacts every student that attends Edgewood and every donation makes a difference!

An envelope was given to your student on Wednesday, November 3, to gather checks or cash (their preference is checks made out to “EPAT”) or donors may also choose to give online using a credit card at: https://app.memberhub.gives/edgewoodmiddleschool2021.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Edgewood, and for considering a donation to EPAT. Again, this fundraising effort concludes on Thursday, November 18, when we will ask all students to submit their envelope to their first hour teacher.

Collecting Donations:

  • All Donations are tax deductible. Receipts will be sent for donations over $250. Online donations are a great way to reach distant family and friends. They are secure for you and your donors and efficient for us to track and collect.

  • Donations collected directly in the form of a check should be placed in the sealed envelope and turned in to teachers by Friday, November 19th. Please make sure the envelope is labeled with your student’s full name.

    • Checks should be made payable to EPAT.

  • Corporate Matching Gifts: Many employers will match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. Consider asking your employer if they will match your donation. This can double your donation! This can be a long process so please start early. Once you receive confirmation that your donation will be matched please email it to us at edgewood.epat@moundsviewschools.org We will include the amount in the fundraising total and it will count toward rewards. Our EIN is 41-1709119.
