No Hassle Fundraising Campaign 2023-2024

Sept 15 — Last Day of No-Hassle Fundraiser! Please make your donation by 5pm!


Welcome back, Falcon Families!


This year at FTE, our goal is to have every FTE family contribute to reach 100% participation level, and we need YOUR help!


No Hassle Fundraiser funds various activities and resources that enrich our children's primary years of development. From memorable field trips to favorite school events like Falcon Frolics to the new state-of-the-art STEM Lab, FTE is setting the precedent in what elementary education could be and should be! 


To continue providing this awesome learning environment for our children, we kindly ask you to participate in our No Hassle Fundraising. As the name suggests, we've eliminated the "hassle" from the typical school fundraising that might require taking time off work or utilizing special skills like selling goods or baking, which we all know not everyone has time nor talent for! Instead, we ask you to take a brief moment and click the link below to simply donate however much or little your heart desires! 


Our suggested donation amount to sufficiently fund this school year is $130 per student, which equates to only $13 per month for the 10 months of the school year. This does not mean, however, that every family has to contribute this same amount. No amount is too small or too big to make a difference in your child's education as every dollar donated will go 100% towards Forest Trail Elementary and benefit our school! 


To make this year's fundraising even more exciting, we are introducing a fun Snow Cone Competition that will reward our kids and their teachers! 


Snow Cone Party!

The top class(es) in each grade level by percentage of participation will win a Snow Cone Party! That means classes with 100% participation will be guaranteed a Snow Cone Party! 


Individual Student & Teacher Prizes!

During each of the 4 full weeks of the No Hassle Fundraiser (8/21-9/15), the top 3 teachers in the lead by class participation will receive a gift certificate to their favorite local businesses! Similarly, we will do a weekly drawing of 3 students from families who donated that week to reward them with the FTE School Store gift card! 


Website Recognition for Every Donating Family & FTE Decal!

New this year, every family who donates will be listed and honored on our FTE Booster Club website. Plus, all FTE families will be gifted our cool FTE Logo Decal as a thank you for your support and involvement in our amazing FTE community! 


We know you love FTE as much as we do, so let's show some Falcon spirit and donate today! 


Your FTE No Hassle Co-Chairs,


Jen Downing & Emily Hong
