Shade4Schools program will enable your PTA/PTO to make a DIFFERENCE, by providing much needed shade structures and help protect school children by being sun safe. By using Shade4Schools fundraising program you will have increased collaboration from parents, family members, friends and close neighbors as they raise funds to cover school playground equipment.
Our program, exclusively designed for funding for shade structures for playground and sports equipment, attracts strong parental involvement, and the nature of the program, being a skin cancer prevention drive will solicit a different level of approach, letting parents solicit support from co-workers thus avoiding the need for door-to-door sales. Funding for playground equipment and playground cover and playground protection has become a priority on PTA/PTO agenda’s nationwide.
