Fundraisers

Our PTA is moving forward with many wonderful activities geared to promote educational and exciting experiences for our Gators.  We wanted to take a moment to show you where we stand financially with our fundraising efforts for the year. 

 

Color Run

 

Color RunOur 2019 Color Run was an incredible success, bringing in over $13,000fundraising meter and helping to raise our income for the year up to 48% of our goal. Thank you for your participation and enthusiasm! 

 

The Color Run is our largest fundraising effort of the year, but there are many opportunities available as the year continues to help us climb the ladder to our goal.  Many of which are easy options to help Gulledge Elementary all year long!

 

Box Tops for Education

The new and improved Box Tops mobile app uses state-of-the-art technology to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to your school's earnings online.  The premise remains: collect box tops from all sorts of groceries and household goods to earn money for our school. Yes, they are only worth 10 cents each, but when we pool everyone’s contribution together we can make a huge difference.
