Give to Githens Fundraising Update: All Matches Received! One More Day To Give!

With one day left in our fundraising campaign, we achieved all three challenge match levels and raised a total of $39,671, exceeding our $35,000 goal. We are beyond thankful for the generosity of our donors!!! Our campaign formally runs through tomorrow, Monday, November 20, so if you wanted to give but haven’t had a chance, you still have time (details below).

Your tax-deductible donations support our Raider community, which we think is a pretty special place! Take a look at this video from last year that captures our sentiments well. When we kicked off the campaign, we asked you to tell us what you love about Githens, and here’s what a few Raider families had to share:

Thank you again for your support! Final campaign donations through Monday can be made online through MemberHub or Paypal. Cash and Checks (made out to Githens Middle School PTA) are also accepted. Donations can also be dropped off at the Githens front office during school business hours (8:15am to 3:00pm) or mailed to 4800 Old Chapel Hill Road, Durham, NC 27707. No amount is too small, every dollar counts and is appreciated! 

See the Give to Githens flyer (English | Spanish) for more information. Reach out to with any questions.

Thank you all for supporting our Githens community!
