What are the different scenarios for families with multiple children at Hawes?

  • By default, families who donate $500 or more are honored at the highest level, Hawesome Hawk, with the benefits listed above. 
  • However, it is possible to downgrade to different levels. For example, if you have two children and donate $500, you can contact Suzanne Tartir and ask to downgrade to the Rockin Hawk level x 2 and receive the benefits that match, but your family will forfeit the Hawesome Hawk benefits. 

Does/do my child/children qualify for the incentives at the different levels based on cumulative money raised by friends and family?

  • Yes, 99Pledges makes it possible for us to track this. If you have family and friends donating in other ways (e.g. check, PTSA Store), please contact Suzanne Tartir. 

How do I make sure my child/children gets credit for donations from other friends and family members?

  • Make sure your child/children is/are listed as participants on 99Pledges. If you haven’t already done so, go to Hawes Direct Donation on 99Pledges, scroll down to the bottom left. Click on the link for “Not in the list? Add participant.”
  • Share your child/children’s unique link with friends and family. 

How do the rewards and opportunity drawings work?

  • If a direct donation to PTSA was made in your child's name, one golden ticket will be sent home! Your child will bring their golden ticket to the next Spin the Wheel Event at the table by the PTSA room (room 39) before or after school on the date indicated and spin the wheel for a prize!
  • You can still make a donation to the PTSA Direct Donation Campaign and your child/children will be eligible for our next Spin the Wheel Event later this month! There will also be another Spin the Wheel Event in December. 
  • For families who donate at the Hawesome Hawk Level, the GRAND PRIZE in the opportunity drawing will happen in mid-January. If you have multiple children, see the section, Direct Donation Overview for details. 
  • For families who donate at the Rockin Hawk level, there will be an opportunity drawing that takes place in mid-January.
