Tip the Scales

Since reopening its doors as a neighborhood school in 2010, Dilworth Elementary School has enjoyed extremely successful fundraising campaigns. Year over year, the annual capital campaign, Tip the Scales, has raised over $100,000 per year in donations and corporate matching funds. Funds raised through this campaign go directly to our school for the purchase of supplies, equipment and technology, well beyond what is provided by CMS. This enables our teachers and staff to provide our students with the best possible academic environment. Some of the items that have been purchased with Tip The Scales funding in the past include SMART Boards, iPads, laptop computers, document cameras, books for the media center, leveled readers for classrooms and scholarship support for students in need.

In 2018, we will embark on a special campaign to “Tip the Scales for the new Dilworth Elementary.” This campaign will run from January 15th to February 23rd and will provide school administration with funds needed to support the new school in 2018.

This website will be updated in January with more information about the campaign. However, if you would like to make a year-end donation toward the 2018 campaign, please use the Paypal link below or mail a check to the school made out to Dilworth PTA with “Tip the Scales” in the memo line.

Please use the “Donate Now – PayPal” link below to make your contribution.

Thank you for supporting our school through the Tip The Scales campaign! If you have questions or need more information about Tip The Scales, please contact Lara Carson or April Whitlock.
