What the PTSO does:
We would like to highlight the AMES PTSO for this Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2023. We have a goal of having 90% of AMES families participate in donating to the success and support of our students and staff this year. We are asking that each family donate $25 per student to the PTSO fund to help cover the costs of events our community has traditionally supported.
To those parents that have already donated, THANK YOU! To the parents who have not yet had an opportunity to participate and are able to, we would ask that you donate whatever amount you can, even if it's $1 or $5 it will still make a difference in how we are able to support our AMES community. (If you are able to give more than $25 or would like to sponsor another student donation, in addition to covering your own student, know that 100% of any amount you give goes directly to supporting the Teachers and Students at AMES.)
In the past Facebook has matched donations for non-profit organizations on Giving Tuesday, but they have not yet released the details of it this year, so we are currently looking for donors that would consider matching the donations that are made on Giving Tuesday 2023. (The donations would be recieved by a registered 501(c)3 and would be eligible for tax deductions.) Please email PTSO.AMES.SLC@gmail.com if there is a person, AMES alumni, business or corporation you think might be interested in matching those donations.
Thank you for your patience as the reorganization of the PTSO has been happening this year. Unfortunately we were not able to help fund the student meals, activities, and bus from AMES to Wheeler Farm this year for the Fall Dance, but if we hit our target goal of 90% of families participating this Giving Tuesday, or have success with our donations being matched, the PTSO will not only be able to help support our Winter Dance, but ALL of the other community support traditions listed below, and possibly more. (For example, the AMES Prom)
