What is INVEST?

INVEST is the Julia Green PTO’s annual giving campaign. 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. The money raised through the INVEST campaign accounts for more than half of the PTO’s operating budget.

If you wish to make a contribution, please donate online  or complete the pledge form located in your brochure and return to your teacher in your child's folder.


Have a grandparent or special friend who would like to mail a check? Just make the check out to “Julia Green PTO,” include your child's name in the memo line and mail their donation to Julia Green Elementary School, Attn: Lindsay Wells, 3500 Hobbs Road, Nashville, TN 37215

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.

The suggested donation amount is $375 per child. We know that every family’s ability to give is different and we encourage you to make a donation that is meaningful to your family. Our fundraising goal for the 2022-23 school year is $150,000.


Did you know that we also accept gifts of stock? If you would like to contribute a gift of stock toward the campaign, please email

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, e-mail

  • Reading specialists

  • Math enrichment teacher

  • New part-time PE assistant and library clerk

  • Capital improvements including new umbrellas and picnic tables for the patio, gymnasium climbing wall and outdoor track

  • Professional development for your child’s teacher

  • Art, science, dance and music enrichment

  • Classroom supplies including $20,000 toward new books

  • Special no-cost events like Hornet Hustle, Field Day, Carnival and the Art Show

  • Online learning programs

  • Unique programs throughout the year including Mr. Bond, Nashville Opera and Ballet

  • Funding for Julia’s Families and expansion of Hornets with Heart

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 INVESTing in our kids!
