The Clyde Hill Elementary families and friends can contribute to our school community through time and money. Everything the PTA does - school events, academic challenges, after school program setup - is done by volunteers donating their time. All the extra educator support that the PTA provides the school comes from generous donations by families and friends. More educator support means more support for all children.
Nothing happens without participation from families.
Clyde Hill PTA plans and organizes a wide variety of events and programs that benefit all students and parents of our school. The PTA fundraising pays for all of these programs thanks to the generous donations by families and friends of Clyde Hill Elementary through two main fundraisers: Envelope Drive (October 23 - November 3) and Walk-A-Thon (Spring 2024).
Please support our school!
Previous Years Fundraising Information
CLYDE HILL ANNUAL FUND
100% FAMILY PARTICIPATION
Clyde Hill PTA plans and organizes a wide variety of events and programs that benefit all students and parents of our school. The PTA Annual Fund pays for all of these programs thanks to the generous donations by families and friends of Clyde Hill Elementary through two main fundraisers:
Envelope Drive (Fall) and Walk-A-Thon (Spring).
The annual fundraising goals are to be able to fund:
Additional staff hours for our General School Assistants;
Curriculum enhancement software programs;
Provide on campus and off site curriculum extension experiences for each grade level; and,
Community building social events for all of our students and families.
To reach this goal, we are asking for 100% family participation in Annual Fund giving. We need YOUR support.
Why an Annual Fund?
Contributions to the Annual Fund directly pay for your child’s Reading Specialist and Instructional Assistants, science and technology programs, cultural and fine arts support community events, and many other vital learning experiences and opportunities that our District and State do not fund.
You can find below further details about how the PTA spends your dollar contributions.
Why should I give to the Annual Fund?
Unfortunately, there is a gap in State and District funding for essential educational programs and classroom support for teachers. It is left to our engaged parent community to cover the shortfalls in funding. Your Clyde Hill PTA spearheads this effort to raise funds required to provide enhanced, well-rounded education for our children.
How much should I give?
Please give to the best of your ability! The money to cover the cost of all enrichment programs, community events, and our amazing support staff amounts to over $100,000 per year. We ask that all families who are financially able to donate $410 per student they have enrolled at Clyde Hill Elementary. Gifts larger or smaller than our $410 ask per student are always accepted and appreciated, and directly support your child’s educational experience at Clyde Hill.
When do I give, and how?
You can donate at ANY TIME! Complete the donation form and return it to school with a check payable to “Clyde Hill PTA.” Donation forms and checks can be dropped at the School Office or mailed to:

What happens if we don’t reach our goal?
