Parent Fundraising Commitment

Families are required to purchase $400 (40 tickets of $10) in fundraising raffle tickets and cash prizes will be awarded through monthly drawings during the school year. Each family may keep monies from the raffle tickets sold to friends and family. For families with only a half-day Pre-K student enrolled at PFGA, the mandatory annual fundraising is $200 in raffle tickets (20 tickets at $10 each).

Parent Service Hours Commitment

VOLUNTEER HOURS FOR 2016-17 MUST BE LOGGED BY MARCH 31. LOG YOUR HOURS ON THE PURPLE FORM BELOW.

The goal of the parent service challenge is to encourage a spirit of shared commitment among all families for the benefit of the school, students and community of Pope Francis Global Academy. Each family is asked to complete 15 hours of service between April 1st of the current school year and March 31st of the following year. Families who wish to opt-out of the service challenge will be assessed $225 annually, which will be added to your FACTS account. For the inaugural year of PFGA, service performed at any of the founding member schools beginning April 1, 2016 will count towards the quota.
