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 2018-2019 goal of $37,000, but any amount is appreciated. We’re striving for 100% participation at some level.

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 enrich our children’s education; to enhance our campus to make it a unique and fun environment to learn; and to ensure are teachers are equipped with the resources to provide the best possible education for our children.
