2020-2021  INVEST Campaign 
What is INVEST?

INVEST is the Julia Green PTO’s annual giving campaign that raises over half of the PTO’s annual budget. It’s a chance for parents, grandparents, and the whole Julia Green community to directly INVEST in Julia Green’s students and programs through monetary gifts.

If you wish to make a contribution, please donate online or request a paper donation form through your child's teacher or our front office.

How Much Should I Give?

No matter what size – your contribution matters!  Every single donation – be it $1, $100 or $10,000 – helps provide our children with an elementary education that is enriching and engaging.  All donations to the Julia Green PTO are tax deductible and will be kept confidential.

Increase Your Gift with Corporate Matching

Many companies have matching gift programs. It's estimated that $4-$7 billion in matching gifts go unclaimed each year. Together we can tap those dollars for Julia Green - it could double your donation at no additional cost to you! 

Typically, you can reach out to your Human Resources or Benefits departments to see if your company will match your gift. If they will, you will likely need to provide the following information to request the match:

  • Donee: Julia Green Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization

  • EIN: 30-0278216

  • Mailing Address: 3500 Hobbs Road, Nashville TN 37215

  • Phone Number: 615-298-8082

  • Amount of your donation

If you have any questions about making a matching gift, Renee Smith at renee.mcadams@gmail.com or Ann Wiles at annwiles@gmail.com

INVEST Helps All of Our Children!

The Julia Green PTO fields funding requests from the Julia Green community twice each school year through a structured, transparent process. PTO funds are used to supplement state funding for Julia Green by providing:

  • Reading specialist

  • Math enrichment teacher

  • New laptops and ipads

  • Professional development for your child’s teacher

  • Art, science, dance and music enrichment

  • Additional PE classes for Kindergarten and 1st grade

  • New recreational outdoor track

  • Books and classroom supplies

  • HEPA Air Filters installed in all classrooms

  • Special events like Hornet Hustle and Field Day

  • Online learning programs like IXL

  • Playground balls

  • Funding for Julia’s Families

  • And much more!

Truly, Julia Green could not provide the exceptional student and faculty support and educational programming that it is known for without its PTO, INVEST campaign, and generous Hornet community. Thank you for your INVESTing in our kids!
