Fundraising

  • Wild Horse One Check Donation! One Check is a one-time, 100% tax-deductible donation to Wild Horse Elementary PTO.  The money raised helps to bridge the gap between the school budget and the programs that create community, enhance learning and build leaders for tomorrow.  It eliminates the need for individual fundraisers such as wrapping paper sales, pizza sales and other similar events.  Through 2017-2018 One Check campaign we were able to raise over $25,000!  We hope to raise the same or more in the upcoming school year through your continued dedication and support to our school.
