What is Walkathon ?

The Walkathon is our fun and Biggest fundraiser of the school year. All the 100% of your donation will go directly to our school programs like Art Vistas, Create with Clay, Project Cornerstone, Music Education, Drama Club, Safety Patrol and many more. 

This year’s fundraising goal is $20,000

Each child has a goal of raising $100, though any amount is most Welcome! 

This year it is difficult to host in person, so we made the decision to hold the Walkathon virtually so that all members of our Lion pride can participate safely.  We may be separated by distance but our Lietz family knows how to move, groove, shake, rattle, and roll together safely! 

9 day Virtual Walkathon event 
Starts:  April 23,  Friday,  Ends – May 1st, Saturday

How to participate?

1. Make Donations

 
  • Cash:  Turn in your cash to your teacher or to the front office.
  • Checks : Turn in your check to your teacher or front office . Checks may be made payable to Lietz Home and School Club.

Donation Form can downloaded from here for cash/check donations. It must be turned into the office and we will not be collecting them online. Please turn in your donations by May 3, Monday, 2021.

  • Credit Card, PayPal: Please use below link to donate.

If your employer is matching donation through Benevity, you can also donate through this platform using the cause here. Lietz HSC is registered as a non-profit there, so it will be eligible for an employer match, if any. Amongst the things to watch for:

  • Please use corporate matching if applicable.
  • Please make sure you choose “Idella Lietz Home and School Club” for matching donation so that it goes to Lietz HSC, not Lietz Elementary school.
  • Some employers do Donation match, which means that when you donate through Benevity, Lietz HSC will be receiving more money than what you donated.
  • When you donate through other means (via PayPal for instance), Benevity still allows you to match your external donation by sending them your donation receipt.
  • PayPal has a commission on donations, whereas employers usually take care of paying the Benevity donation fee. So in general, you’ll get a better bang for the buck by giving through Benevity, when available.
