Our goal
Our aim for this year’s Fun Run is to raise an impressive $50,000!

How will the funds be used?
Ainsworth PTA contributes to teacher classroom and tech needs, important classroom initiatives and educational tools, new books for our library, safety upgrades, supplies for our Specials classes, teacher grants, and much more. This includes community-building events, like the school carnival; curriculum enhancement, such as the Oregon Battle of the Books, talent show and science fair; and school support programs, like staff appreciation week. These programs allow us to continue to grow a strong community to support our children’s education. Your contributions help us create a vibrant learning community.

Shirt Sponsorship Program

Ainsworth PTA is so excited to launch our new Shirt Sponsorship program! Through this program, we will be able to provide an item of spirit wear to EVERY student in our school, while also raising needed funds for our students, staff, and programs this year.

The primary component of our Shirt Sponsorship program is our Event Shirts. We are hoping to partner with local businesses to help sponsor these shirts. Their logo or name will be displayed on the back of the shirt, and worn by every student in our school. Not only will their support be incredibly helpful to Ainsworth, but it will enable us to support them as a community!

If you know of or are part of, a business that would be interested in becoming an Ainsworth PTA Shirt Sponsor, please see here more information and email ainsworthptainfo@gmail.com. Ainsworth PTA is a 501(c)(3) organization (Fed. Tax Id #93-6039286).

We need a commitment and payment from all Sponsors by Wednesday, April 10, 2024 in order to supply all our students with a shirt. 

Thank you in advance for supporting our school! If you have any questions, please contact ainsworthptainfo@gmail.com.
