Lafayette’s PTA is committed to providing every child at Lafayette with the educational tools they need to reach their academic potential. To that end, we again are launching our Annual Giving Campaign! This is our single biggest fundraiser for the year. Last year, despite being a very difficult year, the AGC exceeded its goal and raised over $70,000. This year, we are excited to be fully back in person and are setting the AGC goal to $100,000, in order to start bringing back some of the programs we supported before the pandemic.
Programs and community events, such as teacher stipends, the STEM teacher, the school carnival, the fun run, and the 5th grade NatureBridge trip are all funded through your contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign. We are also looking ahead to adding programs as circumstances allow for them again.
What is the “ask” amount?
Your financial support is critical to the success of this year’s drive and maintaining our PTAs strength! We are humbly asking for any donation that works for you and your family. If you can give, please consider giving $100 per month, or, if able, a one-time donation amount of $1,200 per family. This will keep our PTA strong and allow for continued support of all our kids and the school at the level that we have so far managed to maintain at Lafayette.
Lafayette is a diverse community with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Donations in any amount are appreciated!

If you are an employee at a medium to large company, it is very likely that your company has a matching-gift program. When you donate to the PTA at Lafayette Elementary, a matching employer will then donate part or an equal amount! Please contact your company to find out if they participate.
We can help you facilitate the paperwork with your company to make the process simple. Just contact us at email@example.com.
Do you work for one of these companies? If so, you can potentially double your donation for even more impact! See the full list of companies that are matching donations!
