Bauder 2022 Kindness Campaign and Fund Drive

Fund Drive | Sept. 30 - Oct. 14
Kindness Week | Oct. 3 - 7
Kindness Day | Oct. 7

Fundraising for School? 

Bauder PTO’s annual Kindness Campaign and Fund drive is the only active fundraiser sponsored by PTO.  More passive income streams include partnerships with King Soopers and Amazon Smile.  


PTO’s current operating budget is based on approximately $10,000 raised annually through the Kindness Fund Drive.  This base budget funds important school activities and programs including:

  • Field trips (ex: pumpkin patch, zoo, symphony, Ecoweek),
  • Technology subscriptions,
  • Encore night (4th and 5th grade performing arts program),
  • 5th grade graduation,
  • Community Nights,
  • Classroom parties (Halloween & Valentines day),
  • Teacher supply grants,
  • And more!

This year, our fundraising goal is $12,000 to purchase additional playground / PE equipment and provide funding for additional family involvement events (ie: Breakfast with a Buddy) to boost our school community.  

How to Give:

Online donations are the easiest way to participate and to invite your family and social networks to join in on the fun. If you are able, please consider giving and asking friends and family to contribute. No gift is too small! We invite you to share the donation link with anyone in your child's life. 



The giving platform will be open through Oct. 14th. We also accept cash or check donations in the envelopes sent home on Sept. 29 or in any enclosed envelope or baggie.  Donations are due by Monday, October 17th.

Kindness Week | Oct. 3 - 7

All families can support the event by encouraging their students to complete AOKs (Acts of Kindness) during Kindness Week October 3-7.  Classroom teachers will be logging AOK participation for a chance to win tasty class prizes (pizza and donuts!).  


Kindness Day | Oct. 7

We need parent volunteers for Kindness Day on October 7th.  Please consider joining your student for community-oriented AOKs and helping students accomplish their projects.  

1:20 - 2:10 pm   1ST AND 4TH GRADES
