The Warrior Fund

What is the Warrior Fund?  An annual fundraising campaign to support Ludlow-Taylor’s students, teachers, and staff. 

Where do funds go?  Donations to the Warrior Fund make up a significant portion of the PTO budget — 30% in past years.  Think aftercare, teacher support, and community events.

Warrior Fund Challenge
We encourage every family to donate what you can, whether that is $2, $20, $200, or $2,000! Every dollar directly supports Ludlow-Taylor, and our goal is for 75% of families to contribute.

Where do donations to the Warrior Fund go? 
Did you know that every year the Ludlow-Taylor PTO supports our school with funding for fun activities and curriculum needs that the regular DCPS budget does not cover?  This year the PTO is planning to support Ludlow-Taylor with nearly $143,000 that will be spent on programs that benefit every child across every grade, including events, teacher supplies and other requests, and aftercare. 

These important contributions to Ludlow-Taylor come mainly from the generous support of our families and community. 

In years past, the PTO revenue has come from: 

  • Ludlow-Taylor Auction (45%)
  • Direct donations to Warrior Fund (30%)
  • Grants (15%)
  • Shopping Promotions, Other Projects (10%)

The support of every family in our community helps make Ludlow-Taylor an academically engaging and nurturing space for our children. Thank you for all you have given of your time and in donations.
