Making a Donation

How can I give?

There are many ways you can give - from a lump sum by check (preferred) or credit card, to monthly installments using the ACH withdrawal (auto-withdrawal directly from your checking account).

If giving by check or ACH you may return the red envelope with the golden paper that came home in kids backpacks - return the envelope in your child's homework folder or put it in the PTA safe in the school office.

Preferred Option 1 - ACH Withdrawal

Whether it's one large lump sum or a specific amount each month, you can set up that automated withdrawal directly from your checking or savings account using the ACH withdrawal form above. Again, you specify the details, whether it's a one time donation or you want to break your donation up over the course of several months - it's your choice! 

For example: 10 monthly payments of $85 September through June = Donation of $850

Just mail your completed form to the school marked "McDonald PTA Treasurer", or you can put it in the PTA Treasurer safe box in the main office.

Note: Donations for the Instructional Support Fund must be received by the end of February 2017, in order to meet the District's March 1 hiring deadline for  Instructional Assistants for next year. Donations will still be accepted after Feb to hire new IAs and Interns as needed.

Preferred Option 2 - Checks

This option is preferred because there is no fee charged to the PTA (as with a credit card payment, and to a much lesser extent the ACH withdrawal), so 100% of your donation goes directly to McDonald Int'l.

Feel free to send us a check whenever you want, in any amount you want. Make checks payable to McDonald PTA and drop it in the PTA safe box in the school office or mail it to:

McDonald International School PTA
Attn: PTA Treasurer
144 NE 54th Street
Seattle, WA 98105
Memo: designate your donation for the Immersion Support Fund or SSO Fund

Credit Card Option - (3% fee taken out of donation)

Be sure to specify the student's name when you check out!
