Readathon

15th Annual Read-a-thon: February 2021

Our 15th Annual Read-a-thon will begin February 8th, 2021! The Read-a-thon is the main source of money for new library books. McKinley kids read A LOT, and the money we raise allows our school library to purchase interesting and engaging books so that our kids can read even more. Sponsors can donate anytime between February 8th and March 7th, 2021.  This year, we are using the 99pledges platform to collect and record donations. This platform will allow us to keep all information in a central location. Each child will have his/her/their own personal fundraising page. If you are associated with a current McKinley student, reach out to their adult to get their custom link to the child’s page.  

We also accept donations online via Paypal. Your donation is tax-deductible (Employer I.D. 13-4317995, Federal tax-exempt GEN-0646, under the umbrella of our parent organization, CAPTA).

This year we are aiming to double our donations through a generous $10,000 match from an alumni family so no donation is too small!
