You may have noticed that the Colquitz PAC has not sent home any requests for help in fundraising activities this year. Instead of coupon book or chocolate bar sales, we are trying something a little different. Following the example of other Parent Advisory Councils in BC, Colquitz PAC voted in Oct 2014 to become a fundraising-free zone. Rather than tie up parents, teachers and students time with a variety of fundraising campaigns, we created a new “Parent Contribution Program” where we are asking for direct contributions to the General PAC Fund. We believe that this will not only save endless hours of fundraising coordination, but it will also limit the commercialization of our school, as well as keep 100% of your money in the Colquitz community.
