2021-2022 Fundraising at a Glance

Total Fundraising Goal $126,000

Everything the Adams PTA offers to our students, teachers, and families is due to the generous donations and fundraising efforts in our community. There are many ways to contribute.

The Adams PTA sponsors 4 all school fundraisers due during the year and 2 fun fundraisers. 

We have also gathered some easy ways to earn money for Adams by linking with organizations that many of us already use in in our daily lives.

Please give during the Tiger Love campaign, then choose a few additional options throughout the year to support. All money earned by the PTA directly benefits all students at Adams.
