WHAT: Webinar, “Tips to Boost Your School Organization's Fundraising in a Virtual World,” Hosted by K-12 Clothing

WHEN: Wednesday, October 7, 2020, 1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. ET



A recent study by PTO Today, the leading source of expert advice, ideas, and products for PTO and PTA leaders, showed that 51% of those polled said they need to raise even more money than ever this fall. With schools being online, or hybrid, and most parent-teacher organizations not being able to operate as they did in the past, how are schools going to reach these higher fundraising targets? Host Debora Jones, co-founder of K-12 Clothing, and her guest, Alecia Whitaker, PTA fundraising expert and young adult author, are showing how it’s being done.

Alecia Whitaker is the author of the award winning Wildflower trilogy (Wildflower, The Road to You, and The Way Back Home) as well as the bestselling novel, The Queen of Kentucky, which was optioned for film. She has a BFA in acting and has appeared on talk shows such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Martha, and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, as well as Deal or No Deal. She also hosted a parenting advice YouTube show called The Baby Book and has been in numerous commercials.

Alecia became a mother in 2010, and now has four bright and rambunctious kiddos. When she’s not running PTA fundraisers, changing diapers or tripping over Legos, she is working on two screenplays and an early chapter book series.

Debora is a PTA mom and lawyer turned business executive excited about helping educational organizations achieve their goals. She brings two decades of business experience in sales, marketing, and operations to the education sector. As co-founder and advisor to K-12 Clothing, Debora focuses on strategic growth initiatives to propel K-12 Clothing into a leading role in the K-12 apparel market.
