Our 2017 Cougar Craze Fundraiser was a major success! We raised over $42,000! Thank you for all of your donations and support, our MCE community is amazing. Please remember to support our generous Cougar Craze sponsors through the year!
You make PTA run!
Each year, PTA spends about $100 per student supporting
enrichment programs like Art of the Masters, Science Day, field
trips, assemblies, and others. We also support classroom and
teacher grants, charity outreach, and family fun events. This cannot happen without your donations — we cannot do this without your financial support!

Our school-Wide goal is $30,000.
Our target donation is $75 per student or $150 per family. Donate by cash, check, or online at MCEPTA.org/CougarCraze. Remember that your donations to PTA are tax deductible. Employer matching programs from Boeing, Microsoft, Google, and others can help us reach our fundraising goal. Our fundraiser wraps up on October 6 when students participate in a lunch recess fun run to celebrate our fund raising success.
All MCE students get a Cougar Craze T-shirt!
Other rewards include daily drawings for gear and gift cards, Cougar Pride prize packs, Club 125 pizza parties, and a school wide color run for all students if we meet our goal of $30,000! This year all of our t-shirts, incentive prizes and celebration parties are generously paid for by our sponsors, which means 100% of your donation goes to programs. Please remember them as you shop for products or services.
What can I do?

Does your company offer corporate matching for donations? Many corporations (including local employers like Boeing and Microsoft) will match your donations to non-profit organizations like Mill Creek TPA. Typically, you just need to complete a matching donation request. The necessary forms are often found on the corporate website, or you can ask your HR department. Taking a few minutes to complete these forms is like finding free money to support PTA.
You may need the following information for your matching donation request:
- The exact name of our organization: Mill Creek PTA Everett Council 7.3.37
- MCE PTA EIN number: 94-3082098
- Contact name within PTA organization: Jonelle Radford, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Web site: www.mcepta.org
- Charity description: Mill Creek PTA partners with educational staff and the community to enhance curriculum and raise funds to support the school. Currently the PTA is promoting the "Cougar Craze Fundraiser" to gain sponsors and raise funds to support school programs and events for their students, staff, and families.
Once you've submitted the matching funds form, please send a copy of your confirmation (email notice, letter, or even a screen shot) along with your child's donation/sponsor form so we can count your matching donation.
