ASFS PTA: No-Frills Fundraiser 2018


The Arlington Science Focus School PTA has many great programs and events planned this year to support our kids, but we need your support to make them happen. We are holding our No-Frills Fundraiser again to make it FAST and EASY. Instead of selling wrapping paper or buying chocolates, you just make a donation. That’s it! All of the donations go DIRECTLY to support the school, not an outside vendor. 

Donate today and we can spend the rest of the year focusing on our kids instead of fundraising! If we raise enough to cover PTA expenses with the No-Frills Fundraiser then we will have more time in the spring to focus on community and social events instead of fundraising. 


The ASFS PTA spends on average $150 per child per year to cover:

  • Student Programs, Field Day, Art Show, STEM Night, Outside the Box Day, Guest Authors & Speakers
  • Classroom Supplies, Reflex Math & MobyMax, Field Trip Buses, National Geographic Magazines
  • School­Wide Social Events, Book Swap & Ice Cream Social, Back-to-School Picnic
  • Staff Development, Principal's Fund, Staff Appreciation
  • Community Service, Holiday Helpers
  • Pond/Aquariums, School Grounds, PE Equipment, Technology Needs (Keyboards for iPads)

There are two easy ways to contribute to the No-Frills Fundraiser:

Many people ask how much they should give. Our answer is simple, no amount is too small (or too big!). As a point of reference, the PTA spends on average $150 per child per year on supplies, programs, and services that benefit our entire school community. All donations are 100% tax-deductible; you will receive an email receipt for tax purposes. Also, many companies will match charitable contributions; be sure to check with your employer! 

We are aiming for 100% participation from ASFS families. Again, no amount is too small -- or too big!!
