When do I need to send in my donation for Traditional Giving? It is best to send in your donation as early as possible in the campaign. The campaign is 4 weeks long but the money collected is used for line items that start at the beginning of the school year. By sending your donation in early, you are helping us to budget better for the needs of our school.
How can I be sure that you received my donation? Acknowledgement of donations typically takes a week. It should be noted that the busiest week for donations is the last week of the campaign so acknowledgement will take longer at this point. If you would like immediate confirmation that your donation has been received, it is best to email the Traditional Giving email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When will our family’s name be listed in the weekly Traditional Giving email or on the acknowledgement board in the lobby? Your family’s gift will be acknowledged within 7-10 days of the Traditional Giving chairs receiving your donation. Please keep in mind that this is not necessarily the same day on which you send your donation.
What if we do not wish to have our names listed on the acknowledgement board or in the weekly Traditional Giving email? There is a section on the donor form that you can select not to be publicly acknowledged for your gift.
I am interested in having my employer match my Traditional Giving donation. Where can I find more info about matching gifts? Check here for a list of some local companies that match gifts and for more information on how to submit matching gifts.
I want to give to Traditional Giving but am concerned about confidentiality. All donations made to the Traditional Giving Campaign are kept completely confidential. This information is not shared within the PTA nor with those outside of the PTA.
I do not want to write a check for my donation. Are there other ways to donate? Yes! You can donate cash or donate through PayPal. Please consider that PayPal does charge MPTS a 2.2% service charge for each transaction. If you wish to adjust your donation so that MPTS receives the full amount intended, an adjustment chart is displayed below for your benefit.
I would really like to make a bigger donation over a period of time rather than a smaller donation at this time. Can I pledge to give over time? Yes! We welcome pledges and appreciate your generosity. Please email Leslie Bullins at email@example.com for more information on pledging over time.
I am paying via PayPal. Do I still need to complete the donation form? Yes, please! The form is very important in placing the donation with your child. Without the form, we have a very difficult time knowing to whom to send receipts, questions, etc. Donations made without forms take significantly more time to process than donations made with forms.
My child’s grandparents would like to make a donation. How can they do this? You can either send them the family postcard included in your Traditional Giving packet or simply have them mail in a check in to MPTS PTA. It is VERY IMPORTANT that they include your child’s name and an email address to where we can send a receipt. The mailing address for Traditional Giving donation is: MPTS PTA Attn: TRADITIONAL GIVING 2132 Radcliffe Ave, Charlotte, NC 28207
