Our Main Fundraisers
The Pledge Drive is an opportunity for you, your family, friends, and employer to help support our school without requiring any time commitment. Raising an average of $250 per student helps us assure we can maintain the goal of continuing PTC funding each year.
Additional funds are appreciated as not every family can donate.

At our annual Walk-a-Thon, DeLaveaga recieves 100% of the money raised! Kids gather pledges from family and friends and see how many laps they can complete in the allotted time. This is a great fundraiser to participate in as you get to support and cheer on all the kids as they work hard to raise money for their school.

October & March
Here is your moment! Clean out the garage, reorganize those closets, and bring all your unwanted items down to the school. We will have a Goodwill truck parked for one weekend waiting to take all those items off your hands. Let your neighbors, friends, and family know too! We make money for every truck we fill.

DeLaveaga Spring Carnival occurs in May complete with a kid's raffle, school-wide raffle, and online auction. Each year the parents and teachers of our school put on an epic end of the year carnival to celebrate another completed year of school and raise money for the next year.
The Carnival is 100% parent organized and run. There are so many great ways to be involved, and no job too big or too small!

Throughout the year we partner with local restaurants to choose a date that our DeLa families can eat out and have part of the proceeds of their meal go toward PTC.
These events will be highlighted in our monthly newsletters and posted on the events page once they are scheduled.
