Tired of selling candles, wrapping paper, and cookie dough?  Then support the Lions' Pride Direct Donation Campaign!

In response to requests by families, the PTSA has decided to launch the Lions' Pride Direct Donation giving campaign.  Through this campaign, we are requesting a direct monetary contribution to the PTSA.
 
The Lions' Pride Direct Donation Campaign allows 100% of your contribution to go directly to the PTSA to support its programs and services.  Because the BMV PTSA is a nonprofit organization, 100% of your contribution may be tax-deductible.  There is no minimum donation.  Please consider participating as your donation directly benefits your child and other Beachside students.
 
The time and resources that you contribute are essential to providing your child with the best educational experience.  We hope you show your Lion's Pride and donate today!


Frequently Asked Questions
 
Q:  How does the PTSA use the money collected?
 
A:  The PTSA provides assistance with programs that enrich your child's learning experience at Beachside.  These programs include Compass Learning and Reading A to Z.  The PTSA also encourages a positive learning environment by sponsoring Author Visits, Academic Nights, Upper School dances, and Teacher/Staff Appreciation week.  Depending on how much we are able to raise, the PTSA would also like to assist with the purchase of iPads for students to check out as part of the Media Center.
 
Q:  How much money should I give?
 
A:  The PTSA has not provided a suggested giving amount.  When calculating what you would like to give, please remember that with this simple one-time donation program, you are eliminating the need to sell and buy wrapping paper, pretzels, cookie dough, candles and other catalog-type items.  100% of your donation goes directly to the Beachside PTSA, whereas with other fundraising programs, extensive administrative costs result in profits of only 40% of sales.
 
Q:  How do I donate?
 
A:  You may participate in our direct donation campaign by writing a check or going to our School Store.  All checks should be made payable to BMV PTSA.  Donations may be tax deductible as Beachside PTSA is a 501(c)(3) organization.  Many employers have a matching charitable donation program.  The Beachside Montessori Village PTSA tax identification number is 30-0631459.  Our PTSA group number is 02639510.  Should you or your employer require additional information for tax purposes please email our PTSA Treasurer, Jennifer Herman, at treasurer@bmvptsa.org.
