Foundation Fundraising Goals
The Foundation’s 2019-2020 fundraising goal is $100,000. We need YOUR help!
Join the Collision! with a recommended minimum donation of $150.
THIS YEAR THE FOUNDATION WILL FOCUS ON:
continuing to invest in technology by purchasing 2 laptops per classroom for 6th & 7th grade
securing water bottle filling stations to promote healthy habits within the building
installing banners throughout the building to better identify classrooms
providing other sorely needed critical tools and infrastructure improvements
employing the Morning Monitor – giving all students the option to drop off as early as 8am to attend intramurals, clubs and study/help sessions. This resource is unique to Dickerson and will not be available if funds are not available.
New this year is our #TheMiddleMatters fundraising night at Red Sky on October 17:
we are NOT having a Color Battle this year. Instead we are hosting a community event for parents.
a portion of the evening's proceeds will be donated to the Foundation
school-centric as well as community-centric silent auction items to bid on
One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to these key projects that will pay BIG dividends for our students.

The Board of Directors thanks you for your support.
Many companies will match your donation to non-profit organizations, such as the Dickerson Foundation. Please check to see if your company is one of them and donate even more.
Events sponsored by the Foundation, such as STEAM Night in the spring, provide a fun and educational experience for our students, but also serve as a fundraiser.
The Foundation is fully funded by donations from our families. By giving the suggested $150 family donation, you help us reach our financial goals and fund the projects that are vital to the success of Dickerson Middle School.
