The 2017-18 campaign is kicking off September 22nd and will run to October 27th.
Our goal is to raise $65,000 with 100% student family participation.
Last year, we raised $74,407 with a record-setting 87% family participation. Imagine what we could with 100% participation!
One of the PTA’s most important responsibilities is to raise funds to support Cory academics and programming. The school district budget covers only basic operating costs, teacher salaries and benefits. In order to achieve the learning outcomes we’ve come to expect at Cory, our PTA raises an average of $200,000 annually – approximately $550 per student – to help fund essential staff, programs and resources.
You can participate. Every dollar counts and benefits your child. Past donations have ranged from $10 to $10,000. Please give as generously as your budget will allow. The best way to grow the potential of our children is to invest in their education!
Friends of Cory operates with no overhead, so every dollar donated goes directly into programs that support all Cory students and your donation is 100% tax-deductible. There are no volunteer hours and no door to door selling. This is the easiest way to give to Cory without spending additional time!
Thank you for your generosity and support!
