Annual Giving

WHAT IS ANNUAL GIVING? WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?

Annual Giving is one of the most important and largest parts of the Parents' Association's fundraising efforts. The goal is to create a tradition of families giving on a consistent yearly basis. $160 is the cost per child to cover all the enrichment programs for the entire school population. $160 guarantees that every student has equal access to the programming. It will also provide for classroom supplies and staff support, all of which is greatly needed as school budgets shrink. 

 

OUR AMAZING COMMUNITY

Our P.S. 144 community support allows the Parents’ Association at P.S. 144 to provide ALL of the funding for our school’s residencies; the enrichment programming in art, music, mindfulness and science that our children enjoy each year. What do we need to keep these programs going every year? $160 per student. There is no right or wrong amount to contribute, but participation is vital to our community. Each gift, no matter the size is meaningful! 

 

You can find more detailed information for this year’s residencies under PROGRAMS. It is also translated in multiple languages.
