Tip the Scales

dilworth-tip-the-scales-smallSince 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.

The campaign runs from November through March. Our goal is 100% participation – every gift is tax deductible and no gift is too small!

Our Tip The Scales campaign will include our partnership with our sister school, Briarwood Elementary. Donors will have the opportunity to designate a portion of their gift to help us purchase new school uniforms, materials, and equipment for students at Briarwood and help fund their staff appreciation projects and events.

Please use the “Donate Now – PayPal” link below to make your contribution. Be sure to follow the instructions for filling out the “Notes” section as it is described below.

In the “Notes” section please include the following:

  • The portion of funds that should be used for Dilworth Elementary and the portion to go to Briarwood Elementary. Please note that all matching funds from employers will go to Dilworth Elementary School.
  • Your name as you would like it to appear in donor lists and in your tax letter.

Also, please note that we cannot process recurring (monthly) donations so please do not check the “Make This Recurring (Monthly) box.
