Support CRS

There are many ways to support Churchill Road!  Maybe you like to participate in the classroom and be a room parent? Maybe you like to "pound the pavement" and advocate for all Fairfax County schools? Or maybe you want to volunteer for one of our many PTA committees?

We are lucky to have a generous community and an active PTA, but without funding, unfortunately none of this is possible. Your PTA membership--while greatly appreciated--only covers our state and national dues and things like copy paper and administrative costs. Everything else comes from fundraising efforts sponsored by the PTA.

The Bobcat Fund

First and foremost there is The Bobcat Fund, the PTA's direct-donation drive. This drive allows each family to give a one time donation in lieu of countless fundraising efforts like selling magazines or hosting bake sales. Plus if your employer does charitable contribution matching, you could potentially double (or more!) your donation. Learn more about corporate matching and volunteer grants.

Fundraising Programs

The CRS PTA has several smaller fundraising initiatives as well:

  • Box Tops, Grocery Cards and Online Shopping Programs: We call this "easy money." Why? Because you don't have to purchase anything outside of your normal routine.  For example, you could clip and collect Box Tops or link your Grocery Cards. Or suggest Churchill Road Elementary as your beneficiary on Amazon, and CRS will get a kickback. Or with our newest program, raise money for CRS every time you purchase from Shutterfly or Tiny Prints
  • Spirit Wear: We have a fantastic line of CRS spirit wear! Show pride in your school and wear your Bobcat blue and white! The PTA gets a percentage of these sales.,
  • Events: We have a variety of fun family events like Bingo Night, the Backyard Barbeque, and more! 
  • Large School Events: The PTA currently rotates three big fundraisers every three years - the Churchill Road 5K, the Parent/Teacher Basketball game, and a third event known as "President's Choice."  In past years this has been a Fun Fair, Trivia Night, or school anniversary celebration. 
  • Other Events: Depending upon the year, we may have a Restaurant Night (dine at the local restaurant we have partnered with, and the PTA will receive a percentage of your food total) or other fundraising activities.
