Direct Appeal

The Direct Appeal is the PTA’s most important fundraising effort of the year. The PTA funds enrichment programs and school supplies as well as supports teaching assistants and professional development for our amazing teaching staff.

This year the PTA will spend $900 per student towards educational and enrichment programs at PS29.

We need your help in raising that money. We recognize that each family has a unique economic situation and not everyone can give the same amount. No matter the size, your contribution matters. Help us reach our goal of 100% participation. Here are a few things to think about when making your donation:

  • $50 pays for library and media literacy support for all PS29 students for one week
  • $250 affords one month of professional development for your child’s teachers
  • $500 provides funds for PS29 teaching assistants
    $900 is what the PTA spends on one student per year
  • $2,000 funds two workshops for staff and families on inclusive education
  • $5,000 pays for enrichment programs (dance, chess, music, P.E., STEM, etc.) for one PS29 classroom for an entire year

Donations can be made one-time, weekly, or monthly. A payment of $22/week or $90/month covers the cost that the PTA spends on one student per academic year.
