Annual Fund

AnnualFundHow can I donate? 

Is my donation tax deductible

YES!  The Tritt Tiger Foundation (TTF) is an educational, non-profit, 501(c)(3) public foundation. The TTF accepts individual donations, employee matching grants, charitable organization grants and corporate donations.

What is the suggested donation?

The requested donation is $100 per child; however any amount is greatly appreciated.

Do I need to write separate checks?

If you have more than one child, write one check or make one PayPal transaction. Indicate the names of all children and their teachers and each class will receive credit for participation.

Can I increase my child’s odds of winning the classroom competition?

The classroom competition is based on participation only; not donation amount or the number of times a donation is made in a child’s name. Dollar amount does go toward eligibility for the Privileged Parking Spot, High Investor Recognition and Friends of the Foundation Plaque.

Will I receive a receipt?                    

ALL donations will get a donation confirmation by email that your donation has been received by the TTF.  Donations of $250 or more will receive a tax receipt. Be sure to include youre-mail address on your donation form!

When will I receive my tax receipt for my donation?

If you donated $250 or more, a tax receipt will be emailed to you as soon as possible!  Please understand that at the beginning of the school year we have a high volume to process, so there could be a delay in receiving emails. If you would like a donation receipt for a donation less than $250, you may request one at annualfund@trittfoundation.com

Will I receive a tax receipt for my pledge?

Can I split my donation between two forms of payment?

If you bring your donation or pledge to Open House or Meet and Greet to the TTF table, you will receive your magnet immediately. Otherwise, if you send your donation or pledge in to the school, we will send the car magnet home to you in your child’s backpack as soon as possible.

Is the TTF different from the PTA?

The PTA and the TTF each have distinct and essential roles and operated under specific parameters to improve the quality of our children’s education. By working together, we are able to support teachers and administrators, provide up-to-date technology & supplies, provide enrichment programs, keep families connected to school events, capital improvements, and much, much more! By supporting these two wonderful organizations, you are truly investing in YOUR child’s education!
