What is this Fundraiser For?
Each year Pinon PTO earns money to give to each teacher to help purchase supplies for projects and learning activities. Our goal for this fundraiser is to earn $9,000 so we are able to give each teacher $300. Some parents have expressed interest in a year-long no sell no hassle option. The PTO’s operating costs average about $20,000 per year – about $63 per student per year. Please help us provide the best learning environment possible for our children!
How Can I Participate in the Fundraiser?
This year we would like to provide a variety of ways that parents and others can donate, to help you find the way that suits you best. The six option are listed below.
___1. I will be participating the Charleston Wrap fundraiser. (Please see Charleston Wrap package for more details)
I would like to donate to the PTO with the no-hassle no-sell option. All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of money earned will go directly to the PTO. I have included my check made out to “Pinon PTO” or have donated online at pinonpto.org. Please select from the following two choices:
___2. I will make a one time donation that covers the entire year of expenses. Suggested donation is $63 per student.
___3. I will make a donation now and would also like to participate in other fundraisers throughout the year. Suggested donation is $30 per student.
___4. I pledge to contribute to the LANL Employee Giving Campaign. All donations are tax-deductible and LANL will donate approximately $0.40 for every $1 donated. Please see pinonpto.org for more information.
___5. I do not wish to donate at this time.

What is No Sell, No Hassle?
Some parents have expressed interest in a yearlong no sell no hassle option. The PTO’s operating costs average about $20,000 per year – about $63 per student per year. For this option parents can pay once and don’t need to participate in any other fundraisers. For some families, this may be a lot all at once - so we will continue to have some fundraisers throughout the year.
When does the LANL Employee Giving Campaign Start?
The Los Alamos National Laboratory Employee Giving Campaign is likely to start in mid-October. Los Alamos National Laboratory is likely to give about $0.40 for every $1 that is donated to charity. Los Alamos National Laboratory Employees can have a set amount deducted from their pay check each month and have it directly donated to the PTO. Laboratory Employees should be informed when the Employee Giving Campaign starts up!
