In addition to our tuition, fundraising is vital to help our school run and be the great place that it is. Our parents support our fundraising efforts either by volunteering or providing financial support. As you may know, in past years, these fundraising efforts have included Donut Days at the Oak Park Farmers’ Market and our own annual Cookie Walk event. The range for this commitment in past school years was between $90 – $180 and approximately 15 hours. We expect this year to be commensurate or less, and you will receive more details in your registration packet.
Below is a summary of past fundraisers.
Our Donut Day for the 2017-2018 school year will be September 23 and October 21, 2017. A Sign Up Genius will be sent closer to that date.
In the Spring, Pilgrim works with the Original Works school fundraising program. Students create artwork in class that can be ordered on a variety of items including note cards, coffee mugs, magnets, trivets, and much more. Monies raised through the art fundraiser support our teachers in their continuing education.
Dine Around Town
We partner with several local businesses for Dine Around Town programs. Past partnerships have included Noodles and Co., Lou Malnati's, and Potbelly's. If you are a restaurant who offers a Dine Around Town program, or have an idea for a new partnership, please contact the director or the Board's fundraising chair.
The Annual Cookie Walk is held in early December.
