Like most other schools, our PTO fundraising plays an integral role in the JBE school budget. As we have shown on our website, the PTO allocates your money wisely and efficiently in order to maximize benefit to our students.
You may ask, "so where does all this funding come from?" Great question!
Traditionally fundraising at JBE has consisted of two main segments.
In the recent past, these two organizations have teamed together to host 3 annual fundraisers consisting of: 1. Boosterthon 2. Tom Lee Endowment Golf Tournament 3. Kentucky Derby Party and Auction These 3 fundraisers provided over 90% of the PTO Budget the past 3 years. While we consider this a great success we are always looking for ways to improve. This is our second year having a Capital Campaign with the goal of keeping 100% of money raised at JBE, please visit us here and consider a donation today!
