    Consider a Gift to Lincoln

    Posted 12/20/2018

    Our school needs your support for a great 2019!

    Dear Lincoln Community,

    We hope you are enjoying this wonderful holiday season. We want to take a moment to thank you for the various and meaningful ways that you support Lincoln Elementary students, teachers, staff, families and PTSA. We are so grateful.

    As we approach the end of the calendar year, we wanted to make you aware of our fundraising need so we can make the biggest impact in 2019.

    At the BASH, we shared our goal of raising $50,000. That evening, Lincoln families generously donated $38,000. THANK YOU!! We currently have a funding gap of $18,000. To help close the gap, as well as meet our overall goal of $100,000 for the 2018-2019 school year,  we are requesting a $750 tax deductible donation per family. We realize not every family can do this, and maybe some can do more. Please donate what you are comfortable with. It is completely tax deductible.

    THERE ARE MULTIPLE WAYS TO GIVE:

    • Donation to the Direct Giving Campaign.
    • Give via the Lincoln App
    • Set up an automatic monthly withdrawal from your account through Colorado Gives.  $60/month = $750 per year! Please click HERE. Or through the app, go to Donate and then to Automatic Monthly Giving to be directed to Colorado Gives.
    • Write a check to Lincoln Elementary PTSA and leave it at the front office.
    • Cash (to the front office)
    • Many employers have a matching gift program – check with yours today!

    Here are some ways your donation can make a difference:

    • Funding 4 paraprofessionals (teacher aides)
    • Classroom grants
    • Artist in Residence
    • Community and educational events like Fall Festival, Zoo Night, Science Night and Movies on the Field
    • Environmental improvements to the school building and playground  like the planting of a tree or additional shade for the playground.

    We remind you that at Lincoln we DO NOT ask you to sell gift wrap or butter braids or coupon books to raise money for our school.  The Direct Giving Campaign is your way to make a donation to the school and is 100% tax deductible.  And, even better, all the money raised through the Direct Giving Campaign goes directly towards supporting our children and their education.

    We are grateful for your generosity during this Holiday season. We wish you and your family the very best!
