CSA Fundraising Activities & Events
Fundraising is perhaps the largest aspect of the Pine Hill CSA's purpose. Our local tax dollars go toward the school's budget to provide salaries and building maintenance, but are not enough to cover all of the extra performances, activities and supplies that make Pine Hill a top school in MA.
Did you know the Pine Hill CSA annually contributes:
~10K to Pine Hill teachers and faculty in the form of grants, stipends and appreciation activities
~11K to fund the Mass Audubon Braodmoor Wildlife Sanctuary Program at Pine Hill for all Pine Hill Students (K-5)
~30K to support the various enrichment activities throughout the year - both grade specific and school wide
Read below for information on ongoing fundraising activities as well as events happening throughout the school year. Volunteers are always welcome for these events.
