Annual Direct Give Campaign

Raise Craze Fundraiser




Welcome to our Raise Craze fundraiser!


The Raise Craze ANNUAL DIRECT GIVE CAMPAIGN is Bagley PTA's largest fundraising effort of the year. During this fundraiser, students decide what acts of kindness (AOKs) they will perform, then ask friends and family to support them through donations via the online Raise Craze platform. What a great way for us to teach our students the importance of kindness and gratitude while raising much-needed funds! Students and supporters alike can track progress on AOKs online. Won’t you help us reach our goal?



Campaign Goal:  $55,000 direct giving + $10,000 corporate matching

Dates:  Thursday, October 10 – Friday, October 25, 2019

Daniel Bagley PTA (Bagley PTA 6.15.40 Seattle Council) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.


Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees and/or employees’ spouses. Please check to see if your company has a matching gift program.  You can also check on the American Red Cross website to search for your company.



Every student can participate in Raise Craze by completing Acts of Kindness (AOK) so we’re aiming for 100% participation.


We are excited to see all the ways our students choose to serve others!
