FUNDRAISING – WHAT & WHY

The Northview PTA raises funds for teacher and classroom resources and technology, as well as other worthwhile expenses such as landscaping, staff appreciation, school nurse supplies, student assistance for field trips, etc.

Here are some of the major ways we raise funds:

  • PTA Membership Dues 
  • Effortless Fundraising (Shopping Rewards Programs) 
  • Phantom Fundraiser/Gift of Giving 
  • Restaurant Fundraisers 
  • School Store

PTA Membership Dues

Your PTA membership dues are the foundation for our fundraising. Please join! Our fundraising efforts allow us to provide the following, among other things:

Classroom supplies, technology, landscaping, staff appreciation, school nurse supplies, student assistance for field trips, etc.

Effortless Fundraising – Shopping Rewards Programs

Take a moment to help Northview earn easy money all year long when you shop. By signing up with Lowes Foods, Target and Amazon they’ll donate a percentage of your purchase to Northview. And of course, clip those Box Tops and have students bring them to NEST or the office any time. See details on how to contribute to Effortless Fundraising:  NVMS Effortless Fundraising w logos.docx

Phantom Fundraiser (aka “GIFT OF GIVING” Campaign)

The Northview PTA wants to help you save time, energy and your sanity by offering the PHANTOM FUNDRAISER!

The Phantom Fundraiser replaces selling door-to-door, collecting money, and delivering goods. Please help the PTA skip the “sales suffering” and SUPPORT YOUR SCHOOL with a donation that directly impacts your child’s education! 100% of funds raised in the Phantom Fundraiser go to Northview for technology upgrade purchases. Funds go through the PTA’s “Gift of Giving” donation to the school.

It’s simple – write a check to Northview PTA and note “Gift of Giving” in the memo field. Return the attached form with your check. We’ll send you a tax receipt for your donation.

The state typically provides “matching funds” and in previous years we’ve been able to equip classrooms with presentation stations including a computer, projector, interactive whiteboard, wireless access and document camera. We need more technology in our classrooms and are awaiting state information on matching funds for this year. Please contribute!

Restaurant Fundraisers

The PTA works with local restaurants to have “Spirit Nights” where the restaurant donates a percent of sales to Northview PTA during a specific period of time. Check our Facebook page and the voicemails from Mrs. Dischiavi for information on upcoming Spirit Nights and encourage family and friends to attend. It’s perfect – you get a delicious meal with no effort, and the school receives a percentage.

School Store

The School Store is located on the lower level between the cafeteria and the gym and is open daily from 7:05 - 7:35 and during all lunch periods. We sell Northview merchandise such as water bottles, cinch sacks and t-shirts. We also sell school supplies such as mechanical pencils, notebooks, index cards, tissues for cold/allergy season, erasers, highlighters, and many other fun school related items. The inventory changes each week so stop by and see what's new. 

If you’d like to volunteer at the school store, please contact the PTA board and they’ll be happy to find a shift that works for you. It’s a fun ‘job’, seeing the students come by and being in the midst of things!

If you are sending a check with your child to purchase items from the school store, make it out to Northview PTA and include your child's name on the check.
