Why Not Fundraise?
Windom families do fundraise through various PTO sponsored activities and sales and we’re thankful for the contributions PTO fundraisers make to the quality of education experiences at Windom. We understand that not all families choose to participate in PTO sponsored fundraisers and The Windom School Fund is another method in which all Windom families and supporters can easily financially contribute to Windom.
