Giving Tuesday Is This Week!

After Black Friday comes Giving Tuesday, the national day where people  across the nation give back to the causes and organizations they care most about.  We would ask, that you give our wonderful school,  Zilker consideration on that special day. After all, if our children deserve it and our community expects it why wouldn’t we work together to continue making Zilker a great placed for kids!

Plus every dollar you donate will be matched up to $5,000, thanks to the generosity of  Vincent & Lindsey Ip, Zilker parents and owners of SMILE 360.   So please make a donation this Tuesday!

Give to the “Make Zilker Great” Fund:


SMILE 360 Offers our Zilker Elementary a Matching Campaign!


Donate to the Zilker Fund between now and December 31st and your donation to Zilker will be matched!  Vincent & Lindsey Ip, Zilker parents and owners of SMILE 360 have generously created a $5,000 match goal, for the Zilker Community.  Every dollar raised between now and the end of the year will be matched, dollar for dollar up to $5,000.  So, make your donation today! It will be doubled: $5 is now $10 / $50 is now $100 / $100 is now $200. Every amount helps Zilker Elementary School provide its students with innovative programs like STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, and Math).

Want to know more about how your gift will help our children?  Take a look at our  Zilker Fund video, featuring so many of our wonderful panthers.  We hope you’ll give today! TOGETHER, we all make Zilker a great place for OUR kids!
