The lifeblood of any PTA is a steady flow of resources. Grand Oak Elementary PTA needs your financial commitment to continue our efforts and deliver the best possible results to Grand Oak students. Below are some ways you can help raise funds.

If you have questions about any of the fundraising programs at GOE, please contact the Fundraising Team.

Invest in the Nest

The PTA plays a vital role in helping Grand Oak Elementary provide an excellent educational environment for our children.
Invest in the Nest is a direct giving campaign allowing you to make a direct donation to benefit all of the students at Grand Oak Elementary.

When you support Grand Oak Elementary PTA through Invest the Nest…

  • 100% of your donation is tax deductible!
  • 100% of your donation stays at Grand Oak Elementary

You are invited to Invest in the Nest by direct giving, following this link.

Make your donation go twice as far! Many companies match donations that their employees make, so please check to see if your company is one of them.

While you can give to Invest in the Nest at any time, each fall we hold a campaign which often involves friendly competition among the students to see which classes can be the first to reach 100% participation! This year, our Invest in the Nest campaign will begin on October 4th.

The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you make Coca-Cola purchases including Dasani, Honest Tea, Smartwater, and Powerade, you simply enter the product codes online and our school receives a donation.
