Donate through PayPal

Along with direct donations, Collins Elementary PTA holds fundraiser events throughout the school year. We also participate in several national programs to earn money through the help of our community.

SILENT AUCTIONS, RAFFLES, CARNIVALS, FESTIVALS AND MORE!

One of our largest fundraiser events is our Fall Festival and/or Spring Carnival. This event is driven all by parent volunteers who organize and host a fun-filled afternoon for the community with food, fun games and even a special scary fun element! The proceeds from ticket sales and food purchases help the PTA earn towards our fundraising goal. We look forward to seeing you out there in October!

Another popular yearly event is our Silent Auction where Collins staff donate their time and creativity to come up with fun events that students and families can bid on. We also through in some nice auction items from local businesses too! Generally, this event occurs the same evening as the Collins Open House.

We hope you and your family and friends can join us this year for all of our fundraising events. Have fun and, in turn, give back our school and students!

FUNDRAISING - EASY WAYS YOU CAN HELP RAISE MONEY TO BENEFIT COLLINS STUDENTS!

Which child doesn't like art? Which child doesn't enjoy music or fun activities during and after school? What about field trips, collaborative programs with their friends? No child that we know! All of these listed programs and events (and more) are provided by the PTA. Without the help of families like you our children wouldn't be able to enjoy these well-rounding experiences.

Collins Elementary PTA raises funds needed to run and maintain key programs to benefit Collins students. We provide funding for school events and after-school programs that are not supported through the California State School Funds program.
