In the spirit of the Olympics, all of us joining together can make a difference for our children at Brier Creek! With your help the 3rd annual Brier Creek PTA Invest in Your Child Giving Campaign will meet our goal of raising $25,000. BCES PTA only has two fundraisers to support our budget. The Invest in Your Child Giving Campaign, a two-week (per track) direct giving pledge drive, and Boosterthon Fun Run in January. No product sales.
Why should I give?
NC ranks 46th nationally and Wake County is 97th out of 115 NC counties in per pupil spending and funding is on the decline. Brier Creek will receive LESS THAN $60,000 in state and local funds to support the school for the year. This money must cover everything the school needs from supplies and materials to copies to library books to PE equipment to technology resources and more. This allocation covers the basics, but doesn’t allow the school to fund special programs, enrichment, artists in residence or additional educational resources. With this limited funding, it is vital to give so OUR CHILDREN don’t miss out on quality programs, resources, and support at Brier Creek.
BE A SEED OF CHANGE TODAY! Your investment will help flexible seating & collaborative spaces in all classrooms, track shirts for all students, one in-school science field trip for each class., and more. With your support the BCES teachers and students will have access to excellent learning resources and enrichment opportunities.
How do I participate?
We understand that everyone’s circumstances are different. Our goal is to raise $45 per child which is only $0.25 per day of the 180 days of school. We all know that our children’s education is worth more $0.25 per day. If $45 per child is out of the question for your family, GIVE WHAT YOU CAN. If you can give more than the suggested donation, please consider doing so! Larger gifts and matching contributions are greatly appreciated. Every contribution counts and the amount you donate is completely up to you. 100% of the funds raised through our Giving Campaign go directly to Brier Creek. All donations are fully tax deductible.
