In the fall of 2019, the PTO Executive Board, working closely with Mrs. Chastain, Mrs. Monkul and Mrs. Smith, determined it would be beneficial to create an Angel Fund to support those Southeastern students whose families may be going through a difficult time and are in need or may be less fortunate financially. The PTO views the Angel Fund as an extension of our dedicated efforts to assist Southeastern families who might not be able to fully afford the expenses of the wonderful activities and events our school has to offer.
What is the Southeastern PTO Angel Fund?
The Southeastern PTO Angel Fund is a permanent separate checking account for the PTO. Funds contributed to the Angel Fund will be itemized in the PTO’s monthly financial statements presented at our meetings and shall remain in the savings account until used solely for Angel Fund purposes.
For what will the donations and contributions be used?
Any monetary contributions or donations will be used to fund or partially fund expenditures for a student’s participation in school-related events and activities that his or her family may not be able to fully fund on their own due to financial hardship. Examples include participation in Southeastern’s annual Spring Carnival, support for school supplies, field trip funds, etc. Assistance is available to all Southeastern families in need, and requests for assistance are kept in complete confidence. To make a request for financial assistance, please contact our Counselor.
How does the Angel fund benefit Southeastern students?
The Southeastern PTO Angel Fund is intended to benefit the entire Southeastern student body by including all students in activities and events, no matter what their financial circumstance. Giving everyone an opportunity to participate reinforces our school’s belief of care and compassion and makes our community stronger.
How can I contribute to the Angel Fund?
Families who wish to contribute by making a donation to the Angel Fund directly may write a check made out to the Southeastern PTO, send cash or via Venmo to @SESPTO in the desired amount and noting “Angel Fund” in the memo line, envelope or in notes at any time. Cash/Checks should be delivered to the school or PTO Treasurer(s). In the future, the PTO intends to make the Angel Fund a beneficiary of certain fundraising efforts throughout the year. Families will be informed of any fundraising efforts’ intended use prior to the occurrence of any such event or activity.
We thank you for your support!
