053120 MS54 Special Email: Help Close the Funding Gap
Help Close the Funding Gap!

For the 2019 - 2020 school year, our goal was to raise $475,000 through various fundraising events. Thanks to the impressive efforts of a team of determined volunteers and fundraisers, we’ve raised nearly $410,000 in spite of unprecedented challenges and the cancellation of all our spring events.

We recognize that this is an extremely difficult, stressful, and financially uncertain time, but after much discussion, we have decided to try to close the funding gap of $65,000. If you are in a position to donate any amount, it would be greatly appreciated. And if you are not, we understand.

Since the pandemic began the PTA has paid for:

  • Jugs of hand sanitizer for all classrooms while school remained in session

  • Zoom licenses so that remote learning could begin immediately

  • School and art supplies for students without any at home

  • Headphones for teachers to transition to remote teaching

Additionally, the PTA pays for/supplements several staff and teaching positions allowing MS54 to offer a wide variety of academic and enrichment programming, critical technology investments and facilities upgrades, professional development for teachers, expert guest speakers at parent events, teaching and classroom supplies, and additional supplemental supplies for all students.

Ending this year strong is so important with significant budget cuts looming next year. Please help close the gap!! 

Your donation is 100% tax-deductible and all gifts are appreciated regardless of size.  To keep your gift anonymous, please check the "hide my name" box on the "Donation" page.
