No-Frills Fundraiser





Support Our School

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 from now until December 13th 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.

We introduced the No-Frills Fundraiser a few years ago to take the pressure off of our ASFS Spring Auction. It has worked well so far -- our volunteers can spend more time making the auction a fun, community-building evening! 

How to Donate

There are two easy ways to donate to the ASFS PTA: 

 Donate Online


 Donation Form

(please return to the ASFS office with a check to "ASFS PTA")

You can also donate in person at most of our upcoming fall PTA events by cash, check, or credit card (we have Square swipers!). 

Every gift counts. Donations in any amount are welcome! 

Corporate Matching

Please note that many companies will match your charitable contributions; be sure to check with your employer!
