The “ECC” is our biggest and most important fundraiser. Rather than ask your child to sell products door-to-door and only receive a portion of the proceeds from their hard work, we simply ask families to make a financial donation directly to the McAlpine PTO each Fall. This allows 100% of the money raised to stay at McAlpine to fund classroom and school-wide needs! Your donation is completely tax deductible, and many employers will even match your donation. We hope that you’ll consider the impact your financial gift can make on our school through this easy and convenient $22,000 direct-give capital campaign. Through the Everyone Counts Campaign, every single donation, no matter how large or small, is an opportunity to invest in the McAlpine community and your child’s future!

To donate to the ECC with cash or check, complete the form on the ECC Flyer and return it to school with your payment in an envelope labeled "ECC."

To make a Corporate Matching Gift or Payroll Deduction, please complete this form and then follow your employer's procedure for making matching gifts or payroll deductions. It is very important that you fill out this form, as we may not be notified of your company's donation for several months. Thank you for taking the extra steps to double your investment!
Hosted by local restaurants, these evenings offer food and fun for students. On the designated night, the host restaurant donates a portion of each purchase to McAlpine. Last year, we raised over $3000 through this program. Take the night off of cooking to support our school and these local businesses!
