DONATE ANY AMOUNT

We accept donations in 3 ways: Check, Pledgestar and Paypal:
Checks should be made out to the child’s parent or guardian, and they will, in turn, write one check to the “FREMONT PTA”. It’s that easy! We appreciate donations at any level and all donations are tax deductible. Tax receipts for donors are provided inside the JAT envelope (please photocopy as needed.)

For our Jog-A-Thon this year, we’re using an awesome web based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It’s fun, it’s easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don’t!

• Go to http://pledgestar.com/fremont
• Enter your name and email address, then click Register
• Follow the instructions on-screen

When you finish, the system emails pledge requests to your family and friends, and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online.

Or Use Paypal! You can enter your donation amount after pushing the donate button. On the final checkout page, please put the name and grade of the sponsored student to make sure they receive credit. You need to click on the place that reads “Sponsored Student(s) Name and Grade”.
