Annual Giving/Materials Donation

The Annual Giving Campaign/Materials is the foundation of Alice Birney Parent Guild’s fundraising effort.  Every year we ask that families donate a tax deductible lump sum or a tax deductible payment plan to the Guild. These funds directly pay for Alice Birney’s specialty programs such as: Movement, Music, Handwork, Woodwork and Athletics. This funding provides materials such as: main lesson books, beeswax block and stick crayons, modeling beeswax and clay, colored pencils, watercolor paints, brushes, calligraphy pens and paper.  In addition, this funding also provides classroom and campus upgrades.

The suggested donation to pay for our specialty programs and materials is $350 per student per year. The goal of the Annual Giving Campaign/Materials Donation is 100% participation: with this amount our Specialty Programs can be fully funded.  We realize that families in our community have different financial circumstances. If the suggested amount does not work for you, give what you can. Our goal is to have 100% of our families participate at whatever level works with your financial situation. Families are always welcome to sponsor another child attending Alice Birney by donating extra funds with the knowledge that it is also tax deductible.

Please note that we accept credit card payments only for the Annual Giving/Materials. Any field trip, classroom donations, or fundraising will need to be done via cash or check. Please make a note of what the payment is for when dropping off cash or check.
