2018 Family Giving Fund
Welcome to our General Fund! While the PTA works hard to support the school in every way we can, we need your help! Our General Fund is an exceptionally important part of our overall fundraising program and helps to ensure that we meet our fundraising goals. We are asking for 100% participation, every $10 donation helps! This is also an opportunity to get your 2018 tax deduction in before the year ends.
If you donate to the General Fund before Dec 1st, you automatically enter to win either a Gantry Kids & Teens 10 class card worth $350, a Tailormade for You Skincare gift card worth $250 or three amazing cookbooks. All prior general fund donations are already entered for the raffle. If making donation by check, please input your email address in the memo section. Good luck!
This year’s PTA goal is to raise $200,000 for the 2018-2019 school year. Last year, we raised $150,000, so our goal is attainable! Suggested donation amounts are $1000, $500, $250, $100 per child. No donation is too small and every contribution makes an impact. Our goal is 100% family participation! The PTA raises money to cover school expenditures and programs not paid for by the Department of Education. We are hoping to expand the breadth of those programs while continuing to seek new possibilities for our children. We will continue to work with Principal Pavone to identify the school’s most urgent needs and greatest opportunities for our students.
This year we have already funded: Chinese for the 3rd grade, I-Ready, Recess, Musical Instruments, Red Ribbon Week Swag, Student of the Month Gifts, Student Planners, and SEM Supplies. We still have many more programs to fund, so please help!
PS/IS 78Q is an exceptional school grounded in a thriving community. Our children are receiving an excellent education and enjoying enriching experiences.
