Event-Based Fundraisers
Bradfield hosts several fundraisers throughout the year. These events are a great way for students and parents to get involved in giving back to our school through monetary and volunteer support. These include:
 
Adventure Dash Fun Run: September 13-22, 2016
Adventure Dash is a flat pledge fitness event held in the fall.  Adventure Dash uses fun-filled, age appropriate obstacle courses as a way to show students that no obstacle is too hard to overcome when trying to achieve a goal.  The Adventure Dash Fun Run is a new fundraiser this year! Every student participates in the Fun Run, regardless of pledges raised.  This is the time to have your children ask friends, family and neighbors for their support. 
 
Bradfield Carnival: November 4, 2016
The Bradfield Carnival is the school's premier day of family fun featuring games, booths and concessions. It takes place on the West campus field and inside the Bradfield gym.  Get ready for this year's carnival, the Bradfield Birthday Bash!
 
Bradfield Fall Book Fair: November 10-14, 2016
Each fall the Bradfield library and PTA host a Scholastic Book Fair offering a variety of titles for all ages as well as resource books, games and posters. All proceeds benefit the library.
 
Bradfield Spring Book Fair: April 20-24, 2017
Again during the Spring family picnic, the Bradfield library and PTA will host a book fair focusing on classics and suggested summer reading materials. All proceeds benefit the library.

Parent Teacher Association: Year-long

Company Matching Gifts
As a 501c(3) organization, the Bradfield PTA is eligible for matching gifts from many employers.
Generally, employers will match the value of donations you make, less any benefit(s) received.  All event-based fundraisers at Bradfield, in addition to Parent Teacher Association (PTA) dues and Dads Club dues, are typically available for matching. The process must be initiated by you, the employee, via form or online, but after that it is handled completely by the PTA and your employer. For more information, please contact your employer or Susie Issac, Treasurer.
