Donate to the McKinley PTA Annual Fund

Annual Fund

McKinley’s PTA is committed to academic excellence, social and emotional support, and the diverse, inclusive community McKinley is known for. We demonstrate this in a variety of ways, the most important being the Annual Fund.  Each year, McKinley’s Parent Teacher Association fundraises to bridge the gap between what the SF Unified School District provides and the level of programming that makes McKinley a joyful and equitable learning environment.  But as the costs of everything the PTA supports continue to rise, your generosity and the role of the PTA is more important than ever.  This school year in particular, your donation will help McKinley and our community of students and educators adapt and thrive during these challenging times.

Ways To Donate

Why Donate?

  • This year, with your help, McKinley’s PTA commits to provide $351,000 to augment McKinley's total budget, which represents $1,000 per student.

  • Your contributions help provide all McKinley students with social and emotional learning and enrichment programs, including art, STEAM, and wellness for an educational experience that applies to the whole child.

  • You can help ensure that all McKinley students achieve their full potential by reinforcing teacher impact through instructional support such as math and literacy specialists and a class-size reduction teacher in the upper grades.

  • Funding for classroom supplies ensures teachers don’t have to dip into their own pockets to provide materials and all students start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful.

  • Your generosity can ensure that McKinley’s programming not only weathers tight times but improves and grows, year after year.

  • Your donation is always tax-deductible (Employer I.D. 13-4317995, Federal tax-exempt GEN-0646, under the umbrella of our parent organization, CAPTA).

We ask that you please give a gift that is meaningful to your family. Donation amounts range from $25 to many thousands, and everywhere in between. No matter how much your family is comfortable donating, if you are able, please donate. No gift is too small. Our sincere hope is to see every McKinley family contribute what they can.
