Annual Family Giving to the 217 PTA General Fund
The PTA is the primary funder of the school enrichment programs for all students at the school, including art, gardening, dance and cultural appreciation activities.
These programs WILL NOT continue every year unless the families at the school participate in our fundraising activities. Our suggested yearly donation is $600 per family. You can pay all at once or structure automatic payments on a monthly or quarterly basis.

You can also donate over the school year by check made out to PS/IS 217 PTA, or with cash, using the monthly Donation Envelopes that will come home from school with your child. The Pipeline Donation is $40 per month. As one parent said, “With three kids, I can handle that.”
All donations are tax-deductible.
We are a non-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the tax code. Your donations are tax deductible and may be eligible for matching grants from employers that have matching programs (see a sample list of companies that match donations here).
Percentage of Participation counts!
It is important that everyone donates - in any amount. We need as many families as possible to contribute to show other donors and grantors that our community is invested in our school. The school needs you!
