P.S. 172 in partnership with the PTA is able to offer its wide variety of activities and programs because of the generous support of our families and friends. There are many ways to give to P.S 172 community, from financial contributions of any size to donations of your time and expertise —whether reading to a group of kindergarteners, chairing a committee, soliciting donations for our events, cooking your favorite or volunteering as a coach.
Donations and Employer Matching Gifts: Without generous parental support, P.S. 172 would not be able to do all it does to enrich our student's educational experience and support our school community. Please contribute whatever you can, and invite other parents who care about their child's educational development to do so as well. Please consider sending in a financial donation today and soliciting matching gifts, if your employer offers them.
Corporate and Foundation Support: We welcome corporate and foundation support and partnerships with companies and organizations that believe that quality education makes a difference.
Support us while you shop: P.S. 172 is registered with a few companies that donate a portion of their sales to our school. That's right... free money!!
