The PS 56 PTA raised $20,000 last year, and hopes to raise $33,000 in the 2022 -2023 school year as part of our annual appeal campaign to support our community of leaders and learners!

Donate: Welcome

This year, let’s raise $33,625 to:

At PS56, we believe that every student deserves a robust and stimulating educational experience. But here’s the thing: Offering anything that goes beyond the basics costs money. The NYC Department of Education allocates funds to each public school based on enrollment, but it’s simply not enough to give our children what our teachers, administrators, and parents know they deserve. Even more pressing are the budget cuts that will impact our upcoming school year.  We need your help to bridge the gap left by the DOE for providing music and art enrichment residencies earlier in the year for every classroom, daily recess assistance, teacher classroom supplies, field trips, and free after school chess and Spanish among other things.


PS 56 PTA is a 501(c)(3) Tax-deductible Charity! All contributions are tax deductible.
