What is the Bobcat Club Campaign?

The Bobcat Club Campaign is the PTG’s only fundraiser of the school year.  It is an opportunity for Indian Lane families to donate money directly to the IL PTG in lieu of traditional buying and selling fundraisers (i.e., wrapping paper sales, silent auctions, etc).  100% of the donations support PTG programs, our students, and our teachers.  Donations may also be tax-deductible.

 

Where does the money go?

Money raised by the PTG Bobcat Club Campaign and PTG membership dues are used to sponsor:

  • Assemblies

  • Teacher reimbursement for classroom supplies

  • Grade-level projects & events (i.e., 5th grade luncheon, 3rd grade quilting, etc.)

  • Family events (i.e., Movie Night, Bingo Night, Holiday Extravaganza & gingerbread house decorating, Mid-Winter Festival, Run the Lane, etc.)

  • Birthday Bash each month

  • School-wide Initiatives (i.e., Broadcast Club, Indian Lane Ink, Poetry Cafe, Yearbook, Field Day, etc.)

  • Teacher Wish List

  • Indian Lane Elementary outdoor sign

  • Grandparent’s Day

  • Kindergarten Ice Cream Social

  • And much, much more!

 

Who should donate?

Our goal is to achieve 100% family participation.  Additionally, teachers, grandparents, relatives, friends, community members, and even businesses are welcome to donate.  Please share this information if you know an individual or group who may be interested in supporting our school in this way.

 

How much should I donate?

All donations are very much appreciated, and no donation is too big or too small.  Simply choose an amount that you are comfortable donating.  

All families that donate $25 will receive a free Indian Lane Bobcat mask.  You will receive a free mask for every $25 that donated.  For example, if a family donates $75, they will receive 3 free masks.

Plus, for any donation of $10 or more, PTG membership dues will be paid for the current school year. See additional benefits of your donation on the chart below.

How do I make a donation?

There are two ways to make a donation:  

  • Secure online credit card donation - This type of donation can be a one-time or recurring monthly donation.  

  • Pay by check made payable to “IL PTG”

 

Is there a deadline for making a donation?

Families are encouraged to donate by Friday, October 2, 2020 so that funds will be in place for use throughout the school year.  However, donations are accepted at any time.

 

Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes, in most cases (please consult tax guides or a tax consultant).  Indian Lane Elementary School PTG has been designated as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization by the IRS.  Please retain your donation receipt for your tax records.

 

What is a corporate matching program?

Many companies have programs through which they will "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees.  Through corporate gift matching, you can multiply your donation to IL PTG - making your donation and the benefits that our students receive go further!

Please contact your company's Human Resources office to inquire if they offer gift matching.  If your employer does offer this program, they will provide you with a matching gift form.  Please send it to school, along with your donation,  in a sealed envelope marked "IL PTG Bobcat Club Campaign."
