    Dear Oak Creek Community,

    The Oak Creek PTO is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) created to support Oak Creek Elementary School. Donations to the PTO are tax deductible and all the money we raise stays at our school. We provide services, scholarships, supplies, community building events, and grants to our teachers.

You may change your charity HERE to Oak Creek Elementary PTO. Make sure you purchase items through amazonsmile.com instead of amazon.com. If you are using the App on your phone you will need to change the settings each 6 months to use amazonsmile.com instead of just amazon.com. “To activate AmazonSmile in the Amazon Shopping app, simply tap on “AmazonSmile” within the Programs & Features menu or Settings and follow the on-screen instructions.” More help is HERE. The PTO receives 0.5% of any purchase.

    Do you shop at Fred Meyer? You can support the PTO at no cost to you. Instructions are HERE. Please choose “Oak Creek Elementary PTA” for our organization. Yes, this was created when we were still a PTA.

    Attention: Google, Intel and Nike employees (Benevity)

    The PTO is signed up for Benevity.com. Your company may give to the Oak Creek PTO if you spent time instructing your children at home or provided community service this calendar year. This is a huge deal and may provide $10 an hour that you have spent teaching your child. Other companies use Benevity and we would like to help you get set up. Reach out to OakCreekElementaryPTO@gmail.com if you need more information to set this up.
