2017 Fundraiser

posted Dec 11, 2017, 12:52 PM by Poly PTSA   [ updated Feb 13, 2018, 10:46 PM ]

Dear Poly PTSA Members,

Thank you for your support this year of PTSA and Poly High School Students.  We are writing to you today to ask you to donate directly to the Poly PTSA.  100% of your donation will directly benefit students at Poly High School.

Scholarships for Seniors:                                                       $3,000

Two Filtered Bottle Filler Water Fountains:                            $2,400

Legislative Trip to Sacramento:                                              $  700

Unfortunately, we have currently only raised approximately $1,400 of our $6,100 goal.  With your help today, we can achieve our goals and provide these benefits to our Poly students before the end of the school year.

We have other fundraising activities planned, but based on past results, these will not achieve our targets.   Rather than asking you to buy bags or wrapping paper, we are hoping you will donate directly to benefit our children.  If each of our current members donated an additional $20, we would be able to achieve this goal.

Please consider donating today.  No amount is too small or too large.  We have also made it easier to donate than ever before.  You can either donate online at or mail a check to:

Riverside Poly PTSA
5450 Victoria Avenue
Riverside CA 92506

Your donation is tax deductible. Thank you!

Maria Smith
2017-18 President, Poly High School PTSA
