Direct Donation Campaign

Every Gift Counts, Every Family Matters, Every Child Benefits    





Dear Cowan Family,


Our school has a unique and diverse community with a long history of academic achievement and community participation.  Cowan’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is committed to continuing this legacy by raising donations to help fund enriching educational programs for all of our children.  Some of Cowan’s programming includes Academic Challenge for students who would like to challenge themselves academically outside of the classroom in a fun and engaging way; Music where studies have shown that music lessons can boost children’s IQ and academic performance; Visual Arts which is known to connect students to the world around them and see things in new perspectives; and Coding courses that will equip students to become digital leaders of tomorrow.


As PTO President, I invite you to join our efforts and ensure that we, as parents, are doing our part to support the
school in empowering all of our students for success NOW.  Our goal for this campaign is $13,500 which is an important part of our overall fundraising goal of $50,000 for the 2016-2017 school year.


100% participation in the Direct Donation Campaign is our #1 goal.  We urge you to contribute at whatever level fits your budget as no amount is too large or too small.  I would also encourage you to check with your employer, as many make matching gifts for donations to schools.  Cowan PTO is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.




With gratitude,



Jumoke O. Parkinson,

President, Cowan Avenue PTO
