Engineering & Science Programs

Economics through Jr. Achievement

One School One Book

…and so much more!

How Do I Register My Student(s) and Raise Funds?

 

Parents/Caregivers are asked to register their students online using PledgeStar. It is our easy-to-use web-based fundraising system that makes it simple to request pledges from family and friends at home and around the world. Anyone can make secure online donations using a credit card and all contributions are tax-deductible under IRS Code 501 (c) (3) to the extent permitted by law. PledgeStar will track each students’ progress, notify you when a pledge is made, and allow Eagle Run volunteers to share classroom and school-wide progress.

 

Here's How to Register and Use Our Online Fundraising Tools:

ü  Go to – www.pledgestar.com/jacobwismer

ü  Click “NOT REGISTERED FOR THIS EVENT”

ü  Enter your name and email (Please enter YOUR information here, not your students)

ü  Click “Submit” 

ü  Follow the instructions on-screen to register student(s)

 

How Can I Double My Donations?

 

Corporate Matching Programs are a great way to double your donations and further help us reach our goal. Many companies provide matching funds and/or volunteer hours for direct donations of time or money to the Jacob Wismer PTO. Before making your donation, please check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company will match your contribution!

 

**IMPORTANT REMINDERS**:

1.     Before making a personal donation, or a corporate match, please register you student(s) in www.pledgestar.com/jacobwismer. Donations received cannot be credited to students fundraising progress until the student is registered.

2.     When choosing the charitable organization on your employer’s site to request your donation be matched, please look at the entire name of the organization.  Often, donors are quick to choose the option “Jacob Wismer Elementary School” instead of “Jacob Wismer Parent Teacher Organization” or “Jacob Wismer PTO”.  Although our school will still receive the funds, they will NOT be directed to PTO programs.

3.     As soon as you receive a receipt/confirmation of your corporate match donation, please forward the receipt/confirmation to the Eagle Run team at jweaglerun@gmail.com. Upon receipt, the donation and its match will be entered into PledgeStar and will be reflected in your students’ fundraising efforts.
