Our annual online auction is from May 8th to May 21st
with an in person event on Saturday, May 20th!
In May 2023, we will be holding our Annual Silent Auction and Fundraiser. During the next couple of months, we are asking for parents to assist in getting the word out. A major part of the fundraising effort is obtaining the Donation Items for the Silent Auction. It is actually quite simple! If there is something, someplace or somewhere that you like or attend, simply ask for a donation. Below are some bullet points for your reference when asking.
Friends of Beethoven is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up solely of parent volunteers. Our primary mission is to raise funds to support our students and their educational experience.
Our 2023 Silent Auction will raise vital funds needed for everyday programs at Beethoven. These funds go to some of the following:
o Computer and Coding Sessions
o Art Instruction
o Physical Education
o Field trips
o Pay for many needed basic daily supplies
The expected cost to provide these educational opportunities is over $100,000.00.
As a California Title 1 school, over half of our 300 students are from low-income families.
When asking, you can do the following:
Let people know where their money is going
Offer to pick up the item
Let them know that their gift is Tax Deductible
If they have any questions and need help in answering, please provide my name and email.
We have set a deadline for the donations on May 1, 2023 so that we can include them in our Online Auction. You can drop the donations off at the office. Please ensure that a Donation Form accompanies the item so that we have all the relevant information for the auction and that we can provide a thank you letter for the gift. We do appreciate your help in making this year’s Silent Auction successful.
