Tustin Ranch Elementary PTA raises funds for enrichment programs and experiences that benefit every student.

What Is It?

Paws for the Cause is Tustin Ranch Elementary PTA’s major fundraiser. We invite all of our families to join.  By choosing to support Paws for the Cause, you are providing these programs and experiences that would not be provided otherwise. We create an atmosphere that will broaden our children’s scope of learning while gaining a rich and rewarding experience during the school year.

We are an accomplished school because we all work together to foster this environment for all of our children. Tustin Ranch Elementary is recognized as a Gold Ribbon School for the second year in a row, a California Gold Gold Ribbon School, a California Distinguished School, an American Cancer Society Wellness Award Winner, and a California Business for Education Excellence honoree.

Let’s do our part to ensure our school stays at the top of the pack!

Where Does it Go?

Art & Music Programs, Technology, Library Books, STEAM Equipment, On-Site Field Trips, Robotics, 100 Mile Club, Cool Coyote Store, Family Events, PTA Dues and more…

Please support these enrichment programs for our kids. We are asking each family to make a tax-deductible contribution. 100% of the donations will be used to cover the costs of all enrichment programs and experiences that the PTA provides. With your contributions, our goal is to fund ALL the core programs with hopes of adding more. The funds raised through the Paws for the Cause drive are used to provide programs and materials that are not funded by the state.

How did we come up with $180 donation amount?

The PTA took into account the rising costs to fund our core programs and determined that if we have 100% participation we would be able to provide these valuable programs for our students. If you wish to go “above and beyond” we have included additional donation amounts in hopes of going “above and beyond” for our student’s enrichment.

  • Every donation at the $180 level will receive a free spirit wear “Paws for the Cause t-shirt”, and one PTA Membership.
  • Every donation at the $250 level will receive a free spirit wear “Paws for the Cause t-shirt”, and one PTA Membership.
  • At the $350 donation level, you will receive a free spirit wear “Paws for the Cause t-shirt”, a hardcover yearbook and one PTA Membership.
  • For multiple child families just add $100 to your desired donation level for each additional child.
