P.A.W.S. Fall Fundraising Campaigns

The P.A.W.S. Preschool at Wellesley Schools’ mission is to provide a learning environment that is safe and healthy and supports every child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.

Each year, like most schools, we experience budgetary restraints at P.A.W.S. While these shortfalls do not compromise the extraordinary educational experience we provide our students, they do limit our ability to furnish tools and learning experiences that fall outside of our budget.

Below are three separate fundraising campaigns which represent three distinct needs we have at P.A.W.S. this fall, 2016. We respectfully ask you to consider making contribution, in any amount, to one or all of our fall campaigns.

As always, thank you for your support of P.A.W.S!    — P.A.W.S. Faculty and Staff

General Fund / Teachers’ Fund

Cozy CoupeEach year the teachers at P.A.W.S. Preschool at Wellesley Schools in Wellesley, MA encounter expenses that fall outside of our budget. These expenses range from basic supplies, such as racks and bins for organization, to special teaching aids for a particular lesson, such as Monarch eggs for a classroom butterfly rearing project! Our faculty and staff have more ideas for enriching learning than we have budget to support. With your help, we can accommodate and amplify the educational experience for all students at P.A.W.S.

How it Works Image

School fundraising: It’s so old-school.

Cookie Dough

From candy and candles, to bingo nights and carnivals, raising much-needed dollars for our kids’ schools is exhausting and inefficient. Schools remain strapped for cash and fundraising continues to be a necessity. Unfortunately, these days, most PTOs and parents don’t have the time to raise funds using the same old-school methods.

At simply.fund, we wondered why we were still raising money for our schools the way our parents did 30 years ago. We knew there had to be a faster, easier and more profitable way to accomplish our goals that didn’t require us to give up countless hours to plan restaurant nights and road races or our children to sell over-priced merchandise.

We created simply.fund to bring school fundraising into the 21st century. Simply.fund is school fundraising made simple.

When we asked schools, as well as the families and friends of students, what would make the fundraising process easier, they overwhelming asked for a simple way to donate money directly to the cause. Very few people we spoke with were interested in short-changing a school fundraising campaign so that they could get some over-priced wrapping paper.

Simply.fund is a tool for fundraiser-fatigued principals, PTOs and parents, teachers and coaches. By stripping everything unnecessary out of the fundraising process, we’re able to make the process fast and easy, and deliver the highest profits of any other school fundraising program.

Benefits of simply.fund
– A fast, two-step process for the person managing the fundraising campaign
– The highest profit of any other school fundraiser delivered to schools
– Ability to accept donations online or on any mobile device
– No forms to fill out or merchandise to distribute
