Matching Challenge

If you are considering making a gift to PS8, now is the time!

A generous group of parents has pledged to donate $20,000 if our PS8 community can match this amount by the end of December. The funds we raise will support PS8’s operating budget and help bridge the gap between funding received from the Department of Education and the actual cost of educating each child. 

With your help, we will fund:

  • Teaching Assistants
  • Specialty Teachers
  • Instructional Coaches
  • Facilities Enhancements
  • Health & Safety Measures
  • Outdoor Learning Support
  • Equity & Diversity Work
  • Remote Learning Scholarships
  • Teacher Appreciation

Many companies support causes that are important to their employees by matching their charitable contributions. Please check if your employer has a matching gift program – this is a great way to significantly increase your level of support to PS8.
