PS8 is our local public school serving over 950 students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. As with all New York City public schools in an era of smaller budgets, our PTA must raise funds to pay for many of the educational basics we once took for granted.Our fundraising goal this year is larger than ever and we need your help.
We have some exciting new additions to our fundraising program for the 2016-2017 school year:
Proud Supporter of PS8: With a donation of $250, you will receive a “Proud Supporter of PS8” sticker for your window, drawing in our many PS8 families into your business. Included with that donation, your business will be listed on our school supporter page on our web site.
PS8/MS8 Upd8 Sponsor: With a donation of $550, we will advertise your business in our Weekly “Upd8” email newsletter that is sent out to 1,500 subscribers and has an extremely high view rate for a non-profit organization. Our newsletter is sent out on Fridays and you can choose the date. For $1,000, we can run your ad twice. A PS8/MS8 Upd8 Sponsor will also receive a Proud Supporter of PS8 sticker and will be listed on our web site. In addition, we will promote your business via social media on our Facebook page.
PS8/MS8 Community Event Supporter: Our PTA runs community events throughout the year including family dances, movie nights and our annual Paddlewheeler street festival held in June. These events often bring in a broad cross-section of families at our school and donations from generous community businesses help us keep the cost of these events manageable. Please consider supporting or donating supplies to one or more of our community events held during the 2016-2017 calendar year. With a donation of $500, you will be acknowledged as a Community Event Supporter with your logos on our event literature, signage, and on social media posts in connection with the event.
Annual PS8/MS8 Golf Outing: Our PTA hosts a golf outing at Marine Park Golf Course in Brooklyn in May. With a donation of $100, we will list your business on all signage for the event, including signage on the golf course. In addition, we are looking for items to give away in a gift bag to promote your business.
Annual Auction and Benefit: This is our largest annual fundraising event–one for which we seek significant support, both cash and in-kind donations. Click for the auction sponsorship program or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
