Donate to the Gecko Fund

Be a Giving Gecko!

Gecko Fund 2016-2017

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 2016-2017 goal of $33,000, 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

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.

Q. Where does the Gecko Fund money go?

Student Support
  • Funds the full-time Technology Specialist position, which is currently filled by Gullett’s very own Anne Jarriel
  • Technology upgrades to provide state of the art programming and curricula (For example, last year’s contributions to the Gecko Fud allowed the PTA to purchase a new A/V system for the cafeteria, an Apple TV, an HD camera, Google Chrome Cast, and new projectors!)
  • Enrichment fee scholarships for students in need
  • Funds the sustainability portion of Gullett’s new Tinker Lab Technology Grant
Teacher Support
  • Professional development and other resources to help teachers gain advanced skills
  • Designated substitutes so teachers can do 1:1 reading assessments with each child
  • Staff appreciation events to support and recognize our teachers.
Community Building and Campus Improvements
  • Animal Care programs to provide for all the creatures that call Gullett home
  • Grounds improvements including gardens, shade awnings, and outdoor classrooms
  • Green programs to help Gullett become a zero-waste school

Q. How can I participate and help?
