‘Tis the season for gourds and ghouls . . . and a reminder about the inner workings of the Annual Fund!
Somehow, it’s already late October (!), and the fall holidays are upon us. If you’ve been planning to make your Annual Fund gift before the end of the calendar year, click here to donate now.
No matter how you carve up the budget, the Annual Fund is a critical piece of the pie. Autumn puns aside, read on for a reminder of why every single dollar matters.
The Annual Fund benefits all of our children as an essential piece of PS 107’s budget, supplementing DOE funding to provide:
- Art, music, and science teachers
- Professional development for teachers
- Extra support in classrooms
- Arts residencies
- Building improvements (that gorgeous new mural in the cafeteria, replacing broken cafeteria tables, etc.)
- Essential school supplies
- Technology platforms like Konstella and Operoo
- And more!
WHAT is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is a campaign of direct gifts that, together with revenue from PTA-sponsored events, supports essential school programs. The Annual Fund comprises the largest portion of the PTA’s budget.
This year, the PTA is committed to raising $210,000 in Annual Fund donations.
WHEN should I give to the Annual Fund?
You have until June 30, 2024 to contribute, though making your gift early will allow you to check one more thing off of your list and ignore these emails for the rest of the year. :)
WHY support the Annual Fund?
PS 107’s partnership between the PTA, school leadership, and teachers remains a vital component of what makes our school a wonderful place for students to learn and grow.
Amidst continued budget cuts to schools across the DOE—including our school—these funds remain critical to keeping PS 107 an enriching environment for our kids and families.
HOW to give
It’s easy to make a one-time or monthly donation on Konstella by clicking here.
Please give as generously as you can. We understand that some families are suffering in this economy and that others are faring better. We hope that 100% of PS 107 families will make a gift that is meaningful to them. Whether you give $10, $100, $1,000, or $10,000, every single gift matters.
PS 107 now accepts gifts of stock, and it's quick and easy! If donating stock makes sense for your family, you can do so here.
PS 107's PTA and school administration are deeply appreciative of this wonderful school community. Thank you for your support!
