PCA Friends & Family Campaign: Action Steps

Thank you for your generous support of the PCA Membership and Friends and Family campaign so far.  We are very close to our end goal of $10,000 (mainly due to PCA memberships.)

Therefore, we would like to wrap up our active campaign by the end of November/December!  Please help us meet our goal by taking several steps listed below.

Friends and Family:

Last week, the students did:

  • Brought to the class at least 5 names and addresses of friends and family who you think might be supportive with giving charitably
  • Addressed printed letters and stuffed them in the envelopes to bring home to either mail or deliver

Also, the students can (a) download, print and stuff  Friends and Family Letter at home or (b) email the letter out to other friends and family as well.

Giving Tuesday:

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is known as “Giving Tuesday,” and we are making our last push for PCA Memberships to be made by then.  If you are still considering donating, we would love to have you make your gift on or before Tuesday, November 27.

(Of course, we will take donations at any time, but our active asking will cease this month!)

Corporate Matching:

If your company does corporate matching, please ask for the PCA, a 501c3 corporation to benefit.  Your company will have the paperwork, and our Tax ID # is 26-3487105.

If you have any questions, please contact:
