Fundraising

Annual FundraisingEvery teacher and faculty member does their part to deliver an incomparable high school public education for our local community - but we need your help. Rainier’s 2016-2017 Annual Giving Campaign will allow us to continue to meet our mission at such a high level. We owe the entirety of our success to the loyalty of the Rainier community. Thank you! This year, our goal is to raise $75,000 to cover those student programs that, while not part of our operating budget, are core to the Rainier experience. Every gift, whether modest or monumental, is appreciated.

May we count on your financial help?  If so, you can donate cash or check to the office.  You can also make a contribution through your online lunch payment account.  Your tax-deductible donation will help provide a premiere high school education for all of our students.  Finally, with the end of the year coming soon, don’t forget to check and see if your employer matches donations or if donating can help your tax situation!

Corporate Matching Programs: Many companies sponsor matching gift programs and match charitable contributions made by their employees. This is an easy way for you to double your donation or possibly more! Some companies even match gifts made by retirees. Please request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift.
