Please join us this year for Lincoln’s 12th Man campaign from October 1-15th as we hope to raise $260k to support our amazing students, teachers and Lincoln community.  Our goal is 100% participation from our families, which translates to 100% pledge cards returned to school.

Families should look for RED envelopes coming home with their students via kid mail on Wednesday, October 1stNew this year, we are asking all potential donors to register online at our website, whether you make your gift online or pay with a check.  Please return your pledge card in the RED envelope so your child’s classroom can earn prizes!

Every year, we are asked whether SNAPP PTA has a suggested donation amount. We do not.  We only ask that you please consider an amount that seems right for your family.  Every dollar counts and we appreciate your generosity!

A note about Employer Matching Programs:

Please ask your employer or HR department whether they offer matching funds for charitable donations.  If so, make sure to apply for those matching funds! Seattle North APP PTA is already listed as an eligible charitable organization in many local company’s matching fund databases.  When applying, make sure that the contact information for SNAPP PTA is correct (4509 Interlake Ave. N., #101, Seattle, WA 98103, snapptreasurer@gmail.com).  If the contact information is not correct or North Seattle APP PTA (or SNAPP PTA) is not listed as an eligible charitable organization, please contact Sarah Fuelling at sarahfu@comcast.net for assistance.

If you have any questions, please go to Fundraising FAQs or feel free to contact us at snapp.annualfund@gmail.com.
