Fundraising for the school is a critical piece of the PTO mission. Beside PTO social events to raise money for our on-going support of our student body at Hillside Elementary, the PTO welcomes parents, friends, alumni and community financial support via our Hawky Campaign. 100% of these gifts go to the PTO Hawky fund, and all gifts are tax deductible. There are several ways to support Hillside PTO fundraising initiatives:

  • Donate Online – You may donate online via PayPal on our website directly to the Hawky fund. 
  • Gift by Check – Checks may be made out to Hillside PTO and sent to the school: 507 Howellville Road, Berwyn, PA 19312. Please print out, complete and include this information form with your gift.
  • Fundraising Events – Throughout the year, the PTO organizes many fundraising events. Whether it’s Pizza Bingo, book fairs, kids night out, the Spring Fair or shopping nights at Barnes & Noble, these special events are fun for everyone! 
  • Ongoing Fundraising – In addition to monetary gifts, there are also ongoing opportunities where the PTO receives a percentage of your retail purchases, or monetary rebates through submitting product labels and box tops. These programs have raised thousands of dollars for the PTO, at no additional cost to you. 
  • Corporate matching doubles your donation! Check with your company HR representative to see if your company matches donations. The Hillside PTO’s EIN number is 237053574, which will be needed for the match form.


Thank you for your generous support!
