We have listened to your feedback. Coulson Tough Elementary parents expressed a desire for simplicity and for the school to receive the maximum amount of benefit from each dollar donated by families. In response to your input, we bring you the Tough PTO Check Drive: a tax-deductible fundraising initiative designed to directly support the school dollar-for-dollar and to be an easy one-time payment by check or credit card via the Donate Now button above.
Why does the PTO need to fundraise? Coulson Tough Elementary would be unable to sustain its current programs without your involvement. It is a common misconception that federal, state and local funding will provide all that is needed at the school. Our school does not get money from Conroe ISD for what the PTO provides: these funds come from generous Tough parents, our community business sponsors, and extended family and friends through fundraising efforts each year.
For the 2017-2018 school year, one of our biggest goals is the renovation and expansion of the school’s playground and outdoor sports area, the cost of which is estimated at approximately $75,000. Based on our projected budget, an average donation per child of $85 or more would allow us to begin the process of playground renovations in 2018. With fewer donations, the process would extend into 2019 or later.
Remember 100% of funds will go directly to Coulson Tough PTO!
