New This Year: Web-Based Fundraising! We are super excited to announce this year’s Spear-It Sprint will be using an awesome online fundraising system called PledgeStar.
- It will be much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends.
- It will be much easier for them to make secure credit card donations online.
- Once registered, you will have your own dedicated web page to track donations. You can even personalize it with your photo and set a fundraising goal:)
- Parents and friends can share your page on their social media pages.
- Fun, easy and effective! Students who use this system typically raise twice as much money as those who do not.
IMPORTANT – REGISTER NOW:
- Go to http://pledgestar.com/spears.
- Parents - Enter your name and email address and then click Register to set up a Parent account.
- Follow the online instructions to then add your child(ren) to your family account and create each of their pledge pages.
How Does It Work?
- Once registered, you can customize your pledge page with a photo and goal!
- Next you have the option enter in the names and email addresses of family members and friends.
- A pledge request, containing a link to your pledge page, will be emailed to each of them. They can then make secure credit card donations online.
- You will be notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online.
- Family Sponsorships and offline pledges (cash/check) will be added behind-the-scenes so you can track your overall fundraising totals.
- Regular leaderboard updates will be posted on the Spears PTA website so you can track your and your class’s fundraising totals as we near the deadline.

Class parties, teacher appreciation, educational programs and speakers, art and music supplies, new library books, playground equipment, and Field Day (just to name a few) all rely on funds raised by Spears PTA.
