The PTA raises funds throughout the year to help pay for events, items, and activities that make Maury a better school for our kids. There are many ways you can help, such as paying your PTA membership dues (which you can do here), coming to the annual Gala/bidding on Gala auction items, or making items for a bake sale that raises money for the PTA. Some other simple ways you can help:
Make a Donation
Any time of year you can make a quick donation to the Maury PTA by simply clicking on this Paypal Link. Credit cards are also accepted. Or you may leave a check made out to “Maury Elementary PTA” in the mail room at Maury, in the mailbox marked “PTA.” Additionally, does your employer match charitable donations? Check with your employer’s HR department, or click on this link to a list of corporate-match donors, or try this online searchable database. Your donations are tax-deductible, and Maury’s Tax ID is 541991273.
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of all eligible Amazon purchases to the Maury Elementary PTA! It’s easy to set up: just click here and it should take you to your existing Amazon account and a message will ask if you want to designate Maury as your charity. Say yes, and that’s it! Just be sure to go to smile.amazon.com when you do your future Amazon shopping (you can make a bookmark in your browser), and the donation will happen automatically. You’ll see the same products and get the same prices as on Amazon.com. Spread the word to friends and family — anyone can designate Maury as their AmazonSmile charity!
Eat Dinner at Holy Cow
Holy Cow contributes 25¢ of every burger sold to the Maury PTA! It’s easy, just order one or more burgers and tell them to enter in charity #100 (easy to remember!) or if you forget #100, just say Maury Elementary School. Stop in for dinner at 2312 Mt. Vernon Avenue, order over the phone by calling (703) 666-8616, or order online by clicking here. (There’s a box where you can enter in #100 during your online order!)
Monthly Dine Outs
The PTA organizes dine outs at various area restaurants about once a month. When you mention you’re there to support Maury, a portion of your dinner check goes to the PTA. When you go, you support the school you love, enjoy an evening out with friends, and NO COOKING! Win-win-win! Make sure you’re on the Maury Listserv so you know when dine outs take place. (See bottom of this page.)
Maury Spirit Wear
T-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, sweatshirts etc. with the Maury logo were available for purchase this fall, and possibly will be again in the spring. Don’t miss out on the chance for the whole family to show your school spirit! And these items are approved for kids to wear on uniform days!
If a spring 2019 order happens, flyers will go home with students. For more info, email Elizabeth Turnbull at email@example.com.
Collect Box Tops!
You can find the Box Tops for Education logo on many brand name food, snack and household items. Clipping this portion of the packaging raises money for the Maury PTA — 10 cents for each top, which really adds up when everyone contributes! You can put Box Tops in a baggie and bring it to a PTA meeting, or leave it in the bin marked “Box Tops” right behind the front desk at Maury’s main entrance. Some of the products with Box Tops are shown in the photo below. To see a full listing, click here. You probably already have many of these products at home!
