'Tip The Scales' Annual Campaign

external image 276.jpg
"Tip The Scales" is the annual campaign for Dilworth Elementary School. Funds raised through this campaign go directly to the school for the purchase of supplies, equipment and technology, which enables our teachers and staff to provide our students with the best possible academic environment. Some of the items that have been purchased with Tip The Scales funding in the past include SMART Boards, iPads, laptop computers, document cameras, books for the media center, leveled readers for classrooms and scholarship support for students in need. The campaign will run this year from Wednesday, November 18 - Friday, February 26. Our goal is 100% participation - every gift is tax deductible and no gift is too small!

Part of the Tip The Scales campaign this year will include our new partnership with Briarwood Elementary School. Donors will have the opportunity to designate a portion of their gift to help us purchase new school uniforms for students at Briarwood and help fund their staff appreciation projects and events.

Please use the “Donate Now – PayPal” link below to make your contribution. Be sure to follow the instructions for filling out the “Notes” section as it is described below.
