Don’t know how or what to donate to the Fairmount Park Elementary School Auction? Don’t worry we’ve got ideas!
Work those Contacts – Got Company Connections? Our corporate donation requests are more successful when they come from someone with a connection to the company. Some companies will only donate if the request is from an employee, board member or season ticket holder.
We would love your help contacting the Pacific Northwest Ballet, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Opera, Seattle Symphony, Museum of Glass, Holland America Line, Seattle Art Museum, Teatro Zinzanni, hotels, airlines, and anyone else you have a connection to.
Think Outside Yourself – Ask your family and friends to donate. This is a great way for grandparents, aunts and uncles, even those that live far away, to be involved in your child’s education.
Create an Adventure – Are you a hiker, skier, hunter, fisher, sailor, or kayaker? Volunteer to host a group doing what you already have fun doing!
Host a Fun Event! – If you love to cook or entertain, throw a party, donate dinners to go, or cater a meal. Just a few ideas – themed or ethnic dinner, wine pairings, beer tastings, spa night, game night, movie night, cocktail party, picnic lunches, afternoon tea
