Start collecting pledges and encourage online donations!  Ask for pledges from friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. Send a "Friends and Family" pledge email to make pledge collecting easier. Friends and Family do not have to be authorized users of the PTSA website to make an online donation.  They can donate online by clicking on the "Friends and Family Donate Here" button below. If your company provides corporate matching for donations, please refer to the information below.



Envelopes are due back to school by Monday, October 10th.  Please make checks payable to CVES PTSA.  Donations may be tax deductible.

You can look up the PTSA by Tax ID or EIN: 87-0744093. If you have any questions on this process, please Contact Us.
