HELP US MEET
OUR 2019 GOALS!
Hooty's Nest Egg Annual Fund makes up a significant portion of SOFi's annual budget, funding the extra initiatives that matter most to our school.
This fall, we hope to raise $50,000 and to achieve 100% participation from Bolton Academy's families, faculty and staff by September 30. Gifts are tax deductible and donation receipts will be provided to all donors. Each year brings new needs, but past and current initiatives funded by this campaign include:
Teacher Professional Development, including Leadership Initiatives
State PTA Membership Dues
Parent Empowerment Nights and Workshops
Schoolwide Events like our Back-to-School BBQ, Fall Festival, annual BINGO Night and Bolton Showcase
Staff and Teacher Appreciation
Community Outreach Events
International Baccalaureate Training, Support and Materials
Teacher Reimbursements for Educational Materials
Cultural Events and Field Trips
REASONS TO GIVE
While the property taxes you pay are distributed among all APS schools for district-wide initiatives when you give to the Hooty’s Nest Egg Annual Fund, you’re supporting specific, desired initiatives for just one school: Bolton Academy. That means our kids, teachers and community benefit beyond the APS standard in ways that make the most sense for our school.
Full participation by our key stakeholders demonstrates commitment from the Bolton Academy community to our students' achievement and success. We can’t think of a better message to send to our kids and the broader Westside community about why Bolton Academy is a great place to learn.
The suggested gift is $150 per student, but we gratefully accept gifts of all amounts and simply ask that you give as generously as you are able. We are aiming for 100% participation from families and staff and any amount counts! There are several options for those who have time to give to combine monetary gifts with service hours. Also, keep in mind that you can pay over time as a recurring monthly donation.
Every donor level includes PTA membership and a Bolton spirit bracelet.
You may donate online through PayPal via the links below. Please be sure to include your email, your child's name and teacher name in the notes field! To pay by check, print this donor card and drop it in the PTA mailbox in the front office or mail it with your check to
