Feed the Bear Campaign!


Last year, we launched a new direct donation campaign to support Woodbrook Elementary.  In lieu of fundraising through any number of catalogs, we raised $2,298 that we dedicated towards field trips, teacher grants and teacher appreciation events.  This year’s focus will be on supporting teacher’s efforts to expand experiential learning opportunities and innovate through multi-age classrooms.

As evidenced by the total raised last year, donations in any amount are welcome.  This year our goal is to raise $2500 with a donor offering to match every dollar up to that amount.  That means if as a community we raise $2500, we will actually earn the school $5000!  If every family at Woodbrook contributed only $15 (less than 12 cents per day of school), we would easily meet our target.  Plus, because the PTO is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, any donation you make is also tax deductible.

There are many ways for you to “feed the bear.”  You can send cash/checks/money orders directly to the school through your child with a note indicating that the funds should be put towards the “Feed the Bear” campaign.  Checks/money orders should be made out to “Woodbrook PTO”.   Donations can also be made in person at the office or mailed to 100 Woodbrook Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22901.  You may also contribute via the paypal link below:

Thanks for all you do to support the Woodbrook School community!
