Why is DOE funding not sufficient?
Where exactly do our fundraising dollars go?
How can my contribution make a difference?
For answers to your fundraising questions, we invite K and 1st grade parents to meet after drop off in the Multi-Purpose Room on Friday, October 27. We’ll also hold events for all PS8 families on Fridays, November 3 and November 10 after drop off.
Join us to learn more or just to grab a bagel and coffee while you chat with other PS8 families!
About the Fall Fundraising Campaign
To continue to provide services and resources that make the difference in a PS8 education, the PS8 PTA Fall Fundraising Campaign has a goal of $225,000. With a city deficit and Department of Education budget cuts looming, the stakes are even higher this year.
The PTA raises over $1 million annually, the equivalent of $1,700 per child. That money is used to ensure EVERY CHILD has access to critical classroom, afterschool, enrichment, and arts programs. We ask that EVERY family give what it can.
