Finalizing your DAWG Walk Donation

Hello!  DAWG Walk envelopes are due on WEDNESDAY 9/9/2015.

To finalize your donation envelope, you need to:

  1. Complete your online registration by updating your cash/checks total
  2. Print your Final Donation Sheet
  3. Include your Final Donation Sheet and include it in your envelope with your donations

We have created a short video with instructions on how to finalize your donation form and turn in your envelope correctly.  Following these steps will ensure your child receives all of the prizes they have earned.


If you have misplaced your envelope, below is a link to a page you can print and add to your donation in another envelope.  This will work if you:

  1. Complete your online registration page and print it to enclose with your donation and this page
  2. Print this page and fill it out and include it with your donation and final online print out Envelope Side 1 for Printing
  3. Add all of this plus your donations to a large CLEARLY MARKED envelope and turn that in.  Please make sure it is obvious that this is your DAWG Walk envelope so teachers know to get it turned in with the other envelopes.
