Pledge Donation Information

Pledged donations are the bedrock of the Cascade K-8 Community School PTSA funding. Donations pay for Fall and Spring Camps, field trips, enrichment programs, support for families in need, teacher supplies, all-school events, scholarships for after school programs, and more!

The requested donation is $50 per student per month for 10 months beginning in September.  Because 100% of CK8 students benefit from the innovative programs and activities at our school, we strive for 100% participation in the donation program. If you can’t afford the entire suggested donation amount, that’s ok! Please let us know what you can pay – any amount is accepted. If you are unable to donate at this time, that’s ok too! Please fill out the form and select the appropriate option so we can have an accurate accounting of our fundraising need. And remember, your pledges are tax deductible (but we are not tax lawyers so please confirm with a tax professional)! All information provided is confidential and shared only with the pledge coordinator and Treasurers.

Any questions? Contact the Pledge Coordinator, Thomas Mercer at pledge@cascadek8ptsa.org. And if you want to be involved with budgets and planning, we would welcome you on the finance committee! THANKS!

If you have not already submitted your form for the year, please fill out the online pledge form (much preferred) or use the paper form (PDF) and return it in at the next Community Gathering or to the Pledge inbox in the resource room at school.

We understand not all families can commit to the full donation amount, so we have fundraising activities to supplement our budget. Please remember that completing the form enables us to plan our budget and assess our fundraising needs.  Any amount helps. Please fill out the form, indicating the amount you CAN commit to, and the schedule on which you will pay (Monthly, Quarterly Semi-annually, or One-time).  Then pay that on your chosen schedule.  If circumstances change simply notify the pledge coordinator and we will update the records.
