Annual Appeal 2019

You are invited to join our circle of generous friends with a contribution to the MVRCS PTO Annual Appeal 2019.

What is the Annual Appeal? This is a general fund within the PTO that allows the Leadership Volunteers to fund programs and activities for the entire school community.

Scholarships? Yes! Teacher Appreciation? Yes! After School programs, Half-Day events, and the Speaker Series? Yes!!

And many more events and community building programs that students, families, teachers, and staff have come to enjoy.

What is involved? It’s simple. Make a donation in any amount (we are suggesting $40) to the MVRCS PTO and watch your investment in this independent 501(c)(3) organization grow through the smiles, laughter, and learning that happen with your support.

Two ways to donate this year! Cash or Check donations (checks made out to “MVRCS PTO”) can be sent in via US mail or dropped at either of the PTO Mailboxes in the Fishbowl and Annex Building Lobbies. Send your donations with the accompanying form below to: MVRCS PTO | P.O. Box 761158 | Melrose, MA 01276.


And this year, we will be accepting donations by Venmo! Just scan the QR code below and submit your donation with a note “MVRCS PTO Annual Appeal” in the What’s it for? section of the Venmo app. And, if you require a receipt for your tax deductible donation, help us get that to you by emailing Outreach with your name, mailing address, email and donation amount to be sure that financial contribution is accurately recorded and a receipt returned to you.

Every gift has a significant and positive impact on our school community. For more information, please read PTO President Heidi Barraza’s letter.
