For our Turkey Trot this year, we’re using an awesome web-based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It’s fun, it’s easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don’t!
Remember, our Turkey Trot is November 10, so please register now to help our school raise as much as we can for our PTO to support our students, teachers, and staff. The PTO funds four paraprofessionals in the school, it helps pay for field trips, technology in the classrooms, educational programs during the year, instructional supplies, and teacher requests. The PTO also puts on a few social functions throughout the year to help build community at BMES:
- Go to http://pledgestar.com/bluemountain
- Enter your name and email address, then click Register
- Follow the instructions on-screen
When you finish, the system emails pledge requests to your family and friends and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You’ll find this really helps get the word out to your family and friends who live out of town. You get notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online.
Call 1-888-598-7510 if you need help with this process.
