Gillespie Fussless Fundraiser

Every Dollar Counts!

November 3rd to December 1st

Our goal is to raise $8,000. 

That’s a lot, but together, we can meet this goal!

** Tell your family, tell your friends, tell your employer! **

The Gillespie PTO is excited to announce the return of our Gillespie Fussless Fundraiser. This is the primary PTO fundraiser of the year, and it’s a simple one. Simply donate dollars. Gillespie  students don’t participate in any sales, and 100 percent of your donation goes directly to Gillespie Middle School. When successful, this will be the main request for donations from PTO for the entire school year!

Gillespie’s needs change each year, but in general, PTO dollars support your child’s educational experiences through: 

• 6th Grade Welcome Day • 7th Grade Mad City Challenge • 8th Grade Celebration • Forward Testing Breakfast • School Dances • Cultural Events (Hispanic Heritage Event/Assembly, Black History Event/Assembly, etc.) • Biweekly Popcorn Sale (encouraging positive behavior through pride tickets) • School Spirit Events • Staff Appreciation • Special initiatives, as they arise 

To meet our $8,000 goal, we are asking families to consider donating ANY AMOUNT that you can, as small or large as you feel fit.  We appreciate ALL donations to the Gillespie PTO!

Participation matters!

Gillespie Middle School is a vibrant community of staff, students and families. Communities thrive when  everyone participates and supports one another. We hope that many families will participate in this effort to support our school community. 

Incentive for Success!

The PTO anticipates a successful fundraiser. To celebrate, the PTO plans to have a special Celebration Day at school for the students of Gillespie with games, popcorn and fun! 

Your donation can be TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
