Fundraising Explained


Both PTSA and ASB rely on fundraising and your support to run the above programs. They operate separately under a specific set of laws in Washington state and their funds are not commingled. Fundraising programs take place through-out the year and will be clearly categorized as PTSA or ASB.

Corporate Matching Gifts

When you donate to PTSA or ASB, and ask your company if they can match your donation! It doubles your impact! Please be very careful to ensure that the corporate matching gift funds are directed to the correct organization that received your donation. In some systems, you may see the school listed under its former name, Redmond Junior High. Regardless, it is the end of the name that counts, so look for “PTSA” or “ASB” to make sure that your donated funds can be matched correctly.

Volunteer Matching

Some companies also match dollars to your volunteering hours. Even volunteering a few hours a year can make a big financial impact. Ask your company if they also match your volunteer hours!
