Fundraising is not the primary goal of the Maple Grove PTA, but it is a major way we support Maple Grove Elementary School and its staff and families.The funds raised support activities and programs that enhance the education and wellbeing of its children, staff, and families. Thanks to the generosity of the Maple Grove community, we’re able to support our school in big ways! Each year we hold two major fundraisers (the Fun Run in the fall and the Annual Gala in the spring) and then have a variety of smaller ways you can contribute. Have an idea or another fundraising-related question? Email


Fun Run

Every fall we lace up our running shoes and hit the track for a friendly competition and fundraiser! Students go for personal bests on their lap count and ask friends and relatives to pledge to support them via a flat donation or by lap. As our second-largest fundraiser of the year, we pull out all the stops for a fun, active day! This year’s Fun Run was our most successful ever! Nearly every student participated in some way and we raised over $35,000. Thank you to all the runners, donors, and volunteers who made it possible! Stay tuned for details on next year’s event.


Annual Gala

Every spring we gather for an adults-only shindig with dancing, drinks, entertainment, and a silent auction. It’s a can’t-miss evening that we look forward to all year, and your chance to snag one of the coveted front row parking spots at the school! This year’s gala "Yacht Rock" took place on April 1 at the Marriott at Denver West. We had over 250 guests in attendance and surpassed our $100,000 fundraising goal. Thank you, Maple Grove community! We can't wait until Spring 2024 for the next Gala!


Experience Parties

Experience parties are smaller gatherings that are planned, donated and hosted by individual Maple Grove families throughout the school year. Previous party examples include: Glow Bingo, Tie Dye, Kickball & Kegs, the Dad's Grizzly Gulp 'n' Grill, Moms & Margs, 90' Hip Hop, and many more! When you purchase a ticket to attend any of these parties, all sales are donations right back to the PTA. So yes, the harder you party, the more money we make! 


Grizzly Gatherings

Grizzly Gatherings are fundraising days at local restaurants and businesses that take place on the last Wednesday of every month. We partner with places for you to patronize, and then on the designated day you and your family show up and dine out or shop. A portion of the proceeds are then donated back to Maple Grove. This is a great opportunity to socialize with other families, raise money, and avoid making dinner, all at the same time!

We sell spiritwear twice a year–in the fall and spring. These Grizzly-branded items include tees, sweatshirts, hats, and other items. The PTA makes a small profit on each item sold.

All fall orders have been completed and the gear delivered. If you missed out, no worries–you can order again in the spring. Watch your email and Friday Folder for details!
