Dear  ,

This fall, my school, Cunningham Park Elementary School, is having their fourth 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 15, 2019, 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 Take Learning Outside and be used to build an outdoor classroom.  In an outdoor classroom, our teachers can teach not only science curriculum, such as the butterfly lifecycle, the pumpkin lifecycle, and lessons on Virginia's native species, but reading, writing and math, too.  We hope to include a physical structure, tables with seating, and accessories such as a weather station, a lab table, and more.   
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!
