Annual Fund

Please Support the Garfield PTSA Annual Fund

Our 2022-2023 goal is $140,000!

When you donate to the Annual Fund — whether it’s $10 or $1,000 — Garfield students will benefit.

The Garfield PTSA’s Annual Fund — powered by your donations — funds a wide variety of programs aligned with the vision and goals of the school for the success of every student. Your gift will support investments such as:

  • Staffing support: PTSA funds have helped restore in 2022-23 a part-time position to coordinate volunteering and improve communication with families.
  • Student achievement programs:  We flex with Garfield staff’s requests, and have provided financial support for AmeriCorps teacher aides, Y-Scholars, College & Career Center advising, essay writing tools, and other academic support programs.
  • Classroom needs:  We provide stipends to teachers and also purchase basic supplies such as sets of books and art supplies.
  • Health and student wellness:  We help fund the athletics trainer and provide financial support for students and families in crisis.
  • Small grants:  These include subsidizing yearbooks for low income 12th-graders, and support for a variety of initiatives including student-driven activities such as Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) events and other clubs. Applications are reviewed by the Building Leadership Team 3-4 times each year.
  • Social functions:  We hold community-building events, such as grade-level parent/caregiver meet-ups, college and career success nights, and teacher appreciation. We host the Safe & Sober Grad Night (year-end celebration for seniors) with scholarships and sliding scale entry.
