Please Support the Garfield Community PTSA Annual Fund
Help us reach our 2017-2018 goal of $125,000!
When you donate to the Annual Fund—whether it’s $10 or $1,000— your student benefits, as do ALL students at Garfield High School.
The Garfield Community PTSA’s Annual Fund—powered by your donations—funds programs aligned with the vision and goals of your school and boosts the success of every student at Garfield in many ways, such as:
- Student achievement programs: We provide financial support for AmeriCorps teacher aides in classrooms; Y-Scholars and College Access Now; College & Career Center advising; the Writers in the Schools writing success program; the Read180 remedial reading program; and a variety of other programs.
- Classroom needs: We provide stipends to teachers and also purchase basic classroom supplies, library materials, studio art and photography supplies, sets of books for classrooms, and much more.
- Small grants: These include subsidizing yearbooks for low income seniors; funding the ACT artist in residence program; support for the debate and robotics teams and the Black Student Union; and many others
- Social functions: We help fund social events including the freshman BBQ, college and career success nights, and the Safe & Sober Grad Night
There are many ways to make your tax-deductible donation: You can send cash or write a check, donate online using VISA or MasterCard, set up United Way payroll deductions, or donate shares of stock—all types of donations are welcome! Be sure to check with your employer about matching donations—these are a major source of funding for the PTSA and can double or even triple your own contribution.
On behalf of our students, faculty, and staff, thank you for your generosity. Every dollar helps sustain and strengthen all the qualities that make Garfield so outstanding.
Thank you, and go Bulldogs!
