Your Involvement Matters

Ways to give to PS 150 – Tribeca Learning Center

 

Annual Fund

For decades, PS 150 has challenged its students to strive for scholastic excellence and creative expression in the classroom, on the steps, on the Plaza, and in the community.

Each year, to help sustain our current offerings as well as continually build for the future, we depend on the generous support of PS 150 parents like you. Contributions to the PS 150 Annual Fund help make this possible.

  • Paperless – Go green and make your donation online; recurring monthly gift options are also available. Receipts are automatically generated and emailed directly to the donor.
  • Employer Matching Gifts – More than 1,000 companies match donations made to schools by their employees and retirees. The value of an individual gift can be doubled—even tripled—through corporate matching gifts. Because matching gifts should be initiated by the donor, please inquire whether your employer has such a program and, if so, obtain the proper forms to forward with your contribution. You may also use our matching gifts page to search for your employer and in some cases retrieve the required forms.
  • Check –To make a gift by mail, please fill out this check donation form and send a printed copy of it along with your check, payable to PS 150 PTA, to:

Every gift is important and makes a difference. Thank you!

Volunteer

In addition to your generous monetary donations, we welcome the gift of time! Whether volunteering for the PTA Executive Board, spring auction, community building events, book fairs, or bake sales, it’s a great way to get to know other parents, faculty, and our school better and to help PS 150 as it continues to offer unique educational opportunities, integrate new technology, and provide cultural enrichment for our students.  Join our volunteer database by completing our Volunteer Registry and see what might pique your interest (no commitment required when completing the form).

Book Fairs

PS 150 loves books and reading and we partner with book vendors to provide a selection of quality titles from which parents and students can make purchases.

Complementary to annual bookfairs, our partner, McNally Jackson, has introduced an online Kids Shop  where you will find top selections and bestsellers broken down by reading level, category, and staff picks. At checkout, enter the code: PS 150 and we will receive a donation of 20% of the retail price. Free shipping for orders over $50. Offer limited to children’s books only. If visiting the store in person, remember to mention PS 150 at the register.

When you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. While you are signing up, encourage grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends to designate PS 150 as well! Simply select The Tribeca Learning Center PS 150 Parent Teacher Association Inc as your designated charity and help make an impact each time you shop.

When registering, indicate PS 150 Tribeca Learning Center as your school.

 

Goodsearch and GoodShop

You can earn money by using GoodSearch as your search engine. For every web search you make through Goodsearch, they’ll give you a penny towards your choice of charity. To earn donations, please select “Charity” and then indicate PS 150 – Tribeca Learning Center as the recipient.

Additionally, next time you shop, consider logging on to GoodShop — each purchase made results in a donation averaging approximately 3% of the sale, but going up to 20% or even more. Again, select PS 150 – Tribeca Learning Center as your designated charity.

 

Music Salon

An intimate gathering where professional PS 150 parent musicians perform and share their musical and storytelling talents. This special event, traditionally hosted at the home of a fellow PS 150 family, embraces multiple genres including classical, jazz, world, and rock, as well as the spoken word. Other affiliated performers may be invited to join the concert. Wine, cocktails, a selection of appetizers, and desserts are included. This unique adult-only event is held around Valentine’s Day in February.

 

Spring Auction

The PS 150 Auction is held in the spring of each year and is our most exciting and profitable fundraising event. It is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with the school and get out and enjoy a night bidding on your favorite items and celebrating with friends.  An adult-only event with optional childcare offered at the school.

 

Bake Sales/Tag Sales

Whether you bake, donate your gently used items or volunteer to work the sale, there’s always a way to contribute. Depending on the event, the money raised goes to the 4th and 5th grade graduation funds, the PTA or a charity of choice.

 

Taste of Tribeca

This signature fundraising event involving our school and community at large is known and emulated far beyond our city. With booths and activities set up on Duane Street, parents are asked to help out with this food festival in whatever capacity they can. Always the third Saturday in May, the profits are shared with our neighboring school, PS 234. For updated information visit the Taste of Tribeca website.
