PTSA Stress-Free Fundraising

By popular demand, we are pleased to announce…

Families can make a one-time, monetary contribution in lieu of participating in other fundraisers throughout the school year that consist of “door-to-door” sales, collecting money, and delivering goods. Most importantly, 100% of your donation goes directly to HMS PTSA and is 100% tax deductible.

(A letter including the federal identification number for tax purposes will be provided.)

Hickory Middle School is a school where student learning thrives and children feel good about the place they call their school. We believe that this is because of the incredible students that attend our school, the awesome staff who believe that relationships with students are key to optimal learning and more importantly the incredible support of our families. We could not engage in the wonderful learning opportunities and the fun things we do here without your support.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 without having to sell an item. However, if our goal is not met by mid-October, we will have to resort to a typical fundraiser in order to make up the difference. Simply click on the DONATE button and use your student’s name and homeroom teacher to find their page. Once you get to their page, you can also share their link with friends and family that would be willing to make a donation.

In an effort to reach the $30,000 goal by mid-October, we are encouraging families to make a donation of $50.00 or more. Please know that no amount is too small, however, if your donation is $50 or more, your name will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize. The winner will be announced on November 1, 2019.  Each student bringing in a donation of any amount will be invited to visit the Kona Ice Truck during their lunch time on November 1, 2019.

Please see the attached flyer for additional information and incentives (PDF).  If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser, please direct them to or .
