Tualatin High School Grad Donations Help Make This Graduation Fun for the Class of 2021! - A message from the Grad Parent Committee
We need your help! It’s been a CRAZY year but now it’s time to celebrate the TUHS class of 2021! This class has missed both junior and senior prom, homecoming, football games and more.
We are hoping to make their last few months special. Covid-19 has restricted our ability to host a traditional grad night party so we are working hard to create add-on experiences for our seniors. This is a large graduating class over 400 seniors – so your support is needed and appreciated!
Local corporate businesses have been adversely affected due to Covid-19 and most philanthropy donation programs have been eliminated. As a result, we need to rely more heavily this year on parent donations. Please help us to enhance the last few scheduled events for this year’s graduating class.
How Can I Help?
- Are you a business owner? If you are an owner or have a relationship with a local business, please consider asking them for a donation.
- We are looking for cash donations to help cover costs like class t-shirts for each student, activities, food, prizes, and more!
- Does your business do a corporate match? Please consider maximizing your donation through your employer’s corporate matching program.
- Do you have any extra gift cards you can donate? Consider donating a gift card in any amount, or maybe you have some extras laying around that you can regift.
- Spin the Wheel! Do you have any electronics, dorm room items, camping and recreational supplies, sporting equipment, small trinkets, and other grad related items we can use for giveaways?
How Do I Donate?
- Mail or drop off in-kind donations or a check payable to Tualatin High TSO (reference Grad Fun) to Tualatin High School, Attn: TSO Grad Fun, 22300 SW Boones Ferry Rd. Tualatin, OR 97062;
- Make a donation through the TSO PayPal account (select Grad Night from the drop-down menu);
- To schedule a pick-up of donated items, contact Cindy Murphy, 503.803.0239 - email@example.com.
Donations are tax deductible. Please keep this for your records: TuHS TSO/Grad Fun Tax ID 93-1095464
