Appeal for your donation

Dear Parents,

The Nimitz PTA is continuing the Direct Donation campaign to raise funds required to maintain key programs such as those outlined in the welcome letter by the PTA President.

Some of the key programs PTA will support this year are:

  • Technology Specialist to work with all grade levels in the computer lab
  • Art instructor for primary grades
  • Music instruction for all grade levels
  • Recess 101 to help students establish common playground rules, actions, and teach kids how to resolve conflicts that arise
  • PE for primary grades
  • Soul Shoppe to develop language and behaviors to combat bullying
  • School assembly enrichment performances from professional artists

The PTA needs to raise $50,000 this school year in order to continue to provide these and other programs that support student learning and welfare. Without your support we may lose some of these programs.

In past years, our donation participation rate has barely touched 25% of Nimitz families. This year, we are hoping our parent community will step forward to support Nimitz programs by achieving 100% participation. We need your help to make Nimitz one of the top schools in the Cupertino School District. Our suggested donation is $250 per child but any donation amount is greatly appreciated and will help maintain PTA funded programs. All contributions are confidential and tax deductible.

An easy and effective way to double your contribution is to see if your employer has a matching gift program (like Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, Oracle, and many others listed below.) All you have to do is fill out the appropriate form supplied by your employer and send it back to Nimitz PTA with your donation.

If you have any questions, please email

Thank you for your support!

The following is a list of corporations that have matched employee donations in the past. Contact your Human Resources Department to see if your company will match your donation. In 2014/15, the Nimitz PTA received over $10,000 in corporate maching funds so this is a great way to double the impact of you donation.

Nimitz PTA is recognized as a registered 501(c)(3) charity by the IRS and as such donations are tax deductible as charitable contributions for Federal Income Tax purposes.
