School Uniform Campaign

$75,000 Challenge Match Opportunity!

Collier County Public Schools’ dress code includes uniforms for elementary-age children. Uniforms have several benefits, including keeping children focused on their education, but many families struggle to pay for them. In 2022,
Twenty-nine elementary schools received uniforms for students in need, including 5,952 shirts, 7,080 shorts, and 1,512 sweatshirts.

You have an opportunity to help our students come dressed for school stress-free. Thanks to a $75,000 challenge match from the Collier Community Foundation, Naples Children & Education Foundation, and a Community Foundation anonymous donor, we can help our students and families lessen their financial burden.

We need your help. Your tax-deductible gift of $30 will supply one student with two uniforms for one year. A donation of $600 would provide an entire classroom with uniforms for a year. Any amount is welcome!

Collier County Public Schools works with school guidance counselors to identify the needs of students and the desired number of uniforms for the school. The Collier Community Foundation helps set an expense budget, places orders, and pays the bill with community donations and matching funds.

Together, we can ensure our students are dressed to … discover, determine, detect, dig-in, design, and dream!

Deadline: May 15
