Love Your School

The FTO relies heavily on a direct donation initiative called "Love Your School" to provide funding for our budget. Donations are used to support a wide variety of programs at Desert Willow, including purchasing books and other instructional supplies for the classroom and supporting the teachers with funds for Art Night and the Spring Plays. By donating to the FTO, you help us avoid corporate fundraisers that provide the FTO will very small margins of return. Your full donation is used to support the teachers, classrooms, and students at our school. The DWFS FTO is a non-profit organization, so your donation is fully tax deductible and you will receive a donation receipt for tax purposes.
