Fundraising

Because IUSD is one of the lowest-funded school districts in the U.S. and California, our school is able to help maintain education excellence by fundraising with the help of generous parents and the community.

 

3 Major Fundraisers

Pledge Drive - Back to School

To kick-off the start of each new year and help fund classroom instructional materials, technology, learning excursions, PE support, reading & library programs, science resources, and so much more, we ask that each parent consider a donation to the PTA to cover the $300+ per student budgeted for each child for the school year. This year, we are proud to support a new innovative STEM program that will focus on enriching curriculum in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This program alone costs over $100 per student.

Jog-A-Thon - Spring Community Fundraiser

Because funds raised during Pledge Drive are NOT enough to cover the planned PTA budget for the year, the 2nd opportunity to donate is for Jog-A-Thon in March.

Parents should check with their employers to see if they offer company-matching.  Many employers will match parent donations $1 for $1 or even $2 for every $1.  This is a great way to boost donations without costing you anything –other than a little time to contact your employer’s HR department and process the necessary forms.
