Ward Traditional Academy - Tempe Elementary School District

WTA PTA 2019-2020

General Fundraising

Did you know you can help the WTA PTA raise funds by just doing your everyday shopping?  For example, next time you need to purchase something on Amazon, use the link smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com and designate your charity to the WTA PTA.  The key here is to always use the link smile.amazon.com so we get the donation. 

The same concept goes for Fry’s Food stores.  Just register your VIP card with WTA PTA online.  Then each time you buy groceries, the WTA PTA receives a small portion of the sales.  You must re-enroll every August.

Another ongoing fundraiser is the Box Tops for Education.  Box Tops is going digital! Please download the App, connect your account to Ward Traditional Academy and start earning money for our school today! We will still collect the clip box tops as well until they are phased out. Just clip, save, and submit all unexpired box tops and bonus certificates in a zip lock bag to your teacher or the black box in the school's parent lounge.  Remember to write the teachers name and your name on the bag. See http://www.boxtops4education.com for a complete list of qualifying products.

There are also dining events where on designated nights you and your family can eat at the participating business (Zoyo, The Habit, etc) and a portion of the sales are donated back to the WTA PTA. Make sure you tell them you are with the WTA PTA.  See the Events page for more details.

Historically, the biggest fundraising events have been the Fall Cookie Dough Sale and the Spring Fun Run.  These are the fundraisers that can make or break the PTA budget.  That means your participation is key to continued success and future opportunities for our school.

Finally, if you would prefer a simpler, cleaner and much more efficient approach to bringing funds into the school then please consider donating directly to the WTA PTA.  This money is fed directly back to the school to improve your child's learning and education experience.  Direct donations are the most effective way to keep the PTA budget fully funded.

There are other fundraising activities on the events page that may work for you.  Please email with any questions.
