Donate to the Gecko Fund

Be a Giving Gecko! – Gecko Fund

Q. What is the Gecko Fund?

The Gecko Fund is the Gullett PTA’s largest and most comprehensive fundraiser. It is composed of donations made by Gullett families and covers 50% of the PTA’s budget each year. In order to meet our 2017-2018 goal of $35,000, we recommend a donation of $100 per student.

We have established the following levels of giving:

Giving Gecko – $100 per student

Generous Gecko – $101-$150 per student

Guardian Gecko – $150+ per student

Guardians will be recognized at VIVA Gullett!

Q. Why are additional funds needed?

The operating budget given to the school by AISD are based on meeting the minimal needs of our students and to ensure that we have the same basic resources as other schools in the district. Your donation allows the PTA to fund the special programs that make Gullett the unique, welcoming, and enriching community it is.
