PTA Donations

Invest in Your Child's Success

Invest in Success donations fund the bulk of our PTA programming during the school year.  These programs offer our students a diverse and well-rounded education and vital curriculum supports to ensure that they have every opportunity to succeed both at Fox and into the future.

 

We are striving for 100% participation from our Fox families.  Every child – including your own – benefits from the programs the PTA supports!  It is important that all our families be invested of the education their children receive. 


 

If you have not yet donated, please make your annual donation through the Fox Store.

 

You may also contribute by dropping a check in the PTA Box located in the school office (checks payable to Ben Fox PTA). 

 

And don’t forget to ask your employer to match your donation!

 

As always, thank you for supporting your Fox PTA!
