Dear  ,

This fall, my school Cunningham Park Elementary School, is having their third annual Cardinal Campaign. This is a fundraiser in which we hope to raise $15,000 through tax-deductible donations from CPES families and friends! We will be accepting donations from now until November 16, 2018, to reach our goal.
100% of all funds go directly to the CPES PTA. In addition to all of the activities the PTA supports, the money raised during this campaign will help our school Up Our Game and be used to purchase playground equipment that my fellow students and I will help choose through a process called Project-Based Learning. We'll work together, and with our teachers, to develop our budget, meet with playground experts, and design and select what new equipment we should have on our playground. Also, the PTA will purchase strategy games that can be used in our classrooms during learning centers and indoor recess.  Finally, our teachers are working to Up Their Game, too, and part of the money will fund professional development for them.  
Our PTA is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax-deductible. Our tax-id is 0355826-9. A donation receipt will be provided after your contribution is received.
You can donate the following ways:

  • To donate by credit card, please visit our website at  There is a button in the top left corner that says "Donate Now!"  You can click on the button, select your donation amount, and enter your credit card payment information; 
  • To donate by cash or check (please make your check payable to Cunningham Park ES PTA), mail your donation to: Cunningham Park ES PTA, 1001 Park St. SE, Vienna, VA  22180.
    *Please make sure to note the student(s) you are supporting*

Thank you for supporting me and my school!
