Online Giving Pages

Something new that we will be doing this year is creating Online Giving Pages for our Families that want to fundraise FTK. These pages are very helpful in spreading our lime and fundraising more efficiently! It is a quick, sharable link that can be spread through social media. If your family would like to set up an online giving page, please email the Finance Director, Dan Rafferty at
