Final Tally for The NHE/OV PTA Big Give

Thank you to all who contributed to our Annual Contribution Campaign this year — The Big Give 2020.

Our goal was $4500 and we raised an amazing $5624, all thanks to your generosity!

There were 123 contributions between $1 and $300, averaging $38 each.  50% of the contributions came from Oak View parents or staff and 38% came from NHE parents or staff.  12% came from community members or those who did not identify their school.

These funds raised provide NHE/OV students access to many of the “extras” that enhance our children’s school experience everyday that MCPS does not pay for.  Things like classroom technology programs, art assemblies, library books, visiting artists, musical instruments, recess rainy-day games, and classroom supplies, and more.  One hundred percent of the funds you contribute will directly benefit your child’s education this year.

If you would still like to contribute, you can still do so by using the form below or donating online via Pay Pal by visiting the PTA homepage and clicking on the “Donate” button on the top right.  Thank you!

UPDATE: The NHE/OV PTA Big Give – Donate Today

UPDATE:  As of December 28, we are 98% to our goal.  Please consider giving today!

The PTA just kicked off our biggest contribution campaign of the year. Please consider donating today to help out the students at NHE and Oak View Elementary Schools. Corporate donations also welcome.  The Big Give runs through December 31. Thank you!

The NHE/OV PTA Direct Donation “The Big Give” provides NHE/OV families and friends an opportunity to make a monetary donation directly to the PTA. All contributions go directly to supporting PTA programs without having to profit share with an outside organization. This allows us to move away from direct sales fundraising such as selling gift wrap papers and cookie dough products. The PTA funds (in full or in part) a wide range of activities that all NHEES/OVES students enjoy.

Montgomery County does NOT pay all of the bills at NHE Elementary and Oak View Elementary and funding from the PTA bridges the gap.

The truth is that MCPS does not pay for many of the “extras” that enhance our children’s school experience everyday. Things like classroom technology, art assemblies, library books, visiting artists, musical instruments, recess rainy-day games, and classroom supplies. One hundred percent of the funds you contribute will directly benefit your child’s education this year.

Your support in any capacity helps our schools and your child. Every family’s contribution is greatly appreciated, and we ask that you give as generously as you can. Thank you!

Please use the form below or donate online via Pay Pal by visiting the PTA homepage and clicking on the “Donate” button on the top right.  The Big Give ends on December 31 so give today!
