Donate to the Student Support & Outreach (SSO) Fund

If you've pledged a student for the 2014 Move-A-Thon or just want to donate to the Student Support & Outreach (SSO) Fund, this is the place.

Donate to the Student Support and Outreach Fund

​Thanks for your support of McDonald International's SSO Fund. SSOF dollars are spent in the current school year to benefit all McDonald students - it pays for everything funded by the PTA except for Immersion Support (which funds our IAs and IIs) - everything from supplemental materials for curriculum and programs, special projects, teacher mini-grants, technology in the classrooms, support for our McDonald Int'l library, field trip scholarships so all students can participate, and so much more over the years:

  • Literacy tutors and math programs in the classroom
  • Reading library leveled books in English, Japanese and Spanish
  • Teacher mini-grants for supplemental teaching aids and classroom materials
  • Special enrichment projects inside and outside the classroom
  • Field trip and After School Activities scholarships so every student can participate
  • Supplemental arts and music program at McDonald
  • Our school directory to keep us all connected
  • Community events
  • and more

100% of the donations received will benefit McDonald International students and are tax deductible!

Payment by Check (Preferred)

Checks are preferred because 100% of your funds will go directly to McDonald Int'l. Make your check out to “McDonald Elementary PTA" with "Move-a-Thon" in the memo line.

Checks can be mailed to McDonald International School, Attn: PTA Treasurer, at 144 NE 54th Street, Seattle, WA  98105. Or if you're at school, you can drop it in the specially designated "Move-a-Thon Box" in the main office.

Payment by Credit Card (3% fee taken out)

Be sure to specify the student's name when you check out!

Gift Matching

If any of your child's sponsors work at Microsoft, Boeing, or Starbucks - be sure to include this on your child's form - their employer will match your gift.

Will your employer do the same? Let us know! Contact Elsa Nunes-Ueno.
