We are halfway through our First Annual Giving Campaign and have raised $6,780 dollars –17% of our goal of $40,000. Time is running out, we only have 14 days left of our campaign. A huge THANK YOU again to all our Merrill families who have already donated.
We can do this Merrill Families!
For each grade that reaches 50% participation by the end of the campaign, that grade will receive a donut celebration!
As of this morning, here is how the grades are stacking up for the race to a donut day. Each grade needs 50% of its families donating!
6th grade: 11% of families
7th grade: 5% of families
8th grade: 3% of families
Please consider donating today, any amount helps us to reach our goal. Check out our giving website to track our progress toward our goal, see how many families have donated, share the campaign on social media with friends and family, and of course, submit your donation. Our goal is to raise $40,000 with 100% participation from all of our Merrill families by Thanksgiving break (November 22). Our request is simply that you give as generously as you can.
Friends and Family Can Give Too!
Consider sharing the link to our giving site to grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends. This could be a great opportunity to get your child involved in supporting their school. Have them send it to family members with a message directly from them requesting to support their school. They will receive a tax receipt immediately upon giving through our site: https://fundrazr.com/GivetoMerrill
Company Match! Did you know 65% of companies will match a charitable contribution made by employees, which could double or triple your donation! Please take a few minutes to contact your employer’s HR department to see if your company offers a match. Fill out your company’s matching gift form and drop it off or mail it to us at
Make your donation today! Every dollar counts and benefits your child. Past donations have ranged from $10 to $10,000. Donations can be one-time or recurring and are 100% tax deductible. Your participation truly makes a difference.
