It Only Takes Cents

It Only Takes CentsAn annual fund-raising campaign of the PBL Education Foundation since 2004 has been our program called It Only Takes Cents.

In this one direct mail campaign, the PBL Education Foundation asks donors to donate from five cents to $1 for each student enrolled in the PBL Unit 10 school district. Donations from this campaign are used to fund grants to PBL teachers for new programs and equipment.

Letters are  sent to local business people, civic-minded individuals in the community, retired faculty from the district and alumni from Buckley, Loda, Buckley-Loda, Roberts, Roberts-Thawville,  Paxton, and PBL Schools.  We also offer the staff and faculty of the PBL school system a method by which to donate through payroll deduction.
