Dear Twin Cities German Immersion School Families,

Will you consider making a donation to your PTO for 2017? TCGIS PTO is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your gift would be a tax-deductible charitable contribution.

You are probably aware of the many programs and events that help make our school special and help provide your children with an excellent education - it is likely one of the reasons you decided to send your children here! Did you also know that some of those programs at TCGIS are funded or subsidized by your PTO?

Our principal investment, the Classroom Enrichment Fund, is an annual $10,000 grant allowing teachers to provide classroom enrichment beyond what is budgeted by the school. Our teachers use the funds for things like non-reusable materials for art projects and science experiments, classroom books, materials for special class projects, and student parties for classroom accomplishments.

Your PTO raises funds in a variety of ways to meet our program needs. Many of you already support us through donations, volunteering, or participating in our biggest fundraising event, the PTO Auction. While our fundraising events are fun and successful, we appreciate that many families prefer to give in other ways. For this reason, we are asking that everyone in the TCGIS community consider making a cash donation. Direct donations can be an easy, rewarding, and low-pressure way to provide the resources to pay for classroom enrichment funds and allow new projects.

Your support today means the continuation of programs that help make TCGIS a special educational community. Every donation matters. Thank you for your consideration!
