Support Our School

Support Our School

One of the key roles of the PAELC HSA is fundraising to support our school. We have several fundraisers throughout the year (Donation/Check Writing Campaign, monthly restaurant nights), however there are many areas where you can help raise funds with little effort.

PAELC Home and School Association's financial commitment helps to support students and teachers throughout the school year.  In the past, the HSA has funded school wide assemblies, bussing for field trips, new playground equipment, individual teacher and classroom support as well as student initiatives (e.g., Field Day, snacks, activities for Cozy Cubs reading night) and support for students with limited means.

Take a moment to review the list below and thank you in advance for your participation in any or all of these initiatives.

General Donations

Your contribution makes a difference, no matter if it is $5 or $50. Participation is simple…write a check and you’re done! No gift-wrap, no candles, no pizza. Please consider making a difference for every student by making a family donation to PAELC Home & School Association.  We want our students to have the best education available and programs that turn a good education into an outstanding one. That’s where PAELC Home & School Association comes in. It helps fill the gap between what the Phoenixville Area School District (PASD) education budget covers and what our children need.

Company Matching

Please note that a portion of our fundraising each year also comes from company matching donations (e.g. Vanguard). If your company does company matching, please let one of the HSA officers know!

Shop with RaiseRight

PAELC HSA is using an organization called Raise Right to sell gift cards from over 700 brands.

Parents can buy digital or physical gift cards through the website or the mobile app “RaiseRight.” Each gift card has a certain rebate percentage (2%-18%). You pay full price up front and the HSA receives the rebate. Twice a year, we write you a check for 50% of the rebate you earned. The HSA keeps the other 50% as part of our fundraising efforts.

RaiseRight mobile app allows you to track your gift cards and receive the digital cards within a minute. You can also ship physical gift cards either to your home for a fee or to the HSA coordinator for free; order by third Friday of the month and coordinator will distribute by the first week of the following month.
