Dear P.S. 144 Families,

Our Appeal for 144 has raised over $18,000 toward our annual budget of $115,500. Along with our other events and fundraisers, we have raised over $34,000 in support of enrichment programs, special events, and supplies for the benefit of all of our children. We are now nearing 30% of our goal. Can you help us reach 100%? We can fill the circle, if we come together as a community.

$144 supports an entire year of enrichment programs, hands-on supplies, and special events for one student. This means music, art, theater, science, dance, and puppetry continue to have a home at P.S. 144



f you have already given, we gratefully count you among our CURRENT DONORS. Thank you for your support!

To all of our FUTURE DONORS: we welcome and will appreciate any amount you can afford. 264 students out of 818 students' families have contributed so far—let's get all of our families involved and make this a great community effort!


Please send your donation to the main office labeled "P.A. Appeal" and make all checks payable to the P.A. of P.S. 144. You may also donate using PayPal at http://www.pa144.com/online.html. Remember that our P.A. is a recognized 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible! See our information on matching gifts below—your employer may double your donation.

A very sincere thanks to all who give by volunteering their time as well—your help is equally critical to our success!

Best wishes,
Rosanne & Sandra
