Donate to the McKinley PTA Annual Fund

Annual Fund

Consider making a donation to the PTA’s Reach for the Stars Annual Fund campaign. Your direct support through our annual campaign will help McKinley and our community of students and educators to recover from the losses during our long hiatus from in-person learning during the pandemic. They’ll also put us on a more solid financial footing for next year and moving forward as we face significant cuts in district funding.

 

Ways To Donate

Double your donation to the Annual Fund through a Corporate Matching Gift!

Many companies, large and small, offer matching gift programs to encourage charitable giving. Some even match gifts made by retirees, family members, and friends of McKinley PTA.  See our list of companies who have matched donations to the McKinley PTA before or check with your HR department today!

Why Donate?

  • This year, with your help, McKinley’s PTA is committed to providing $290,750 to augment McKinley's total budget, which represents $1,053 per student.

  • Your contributions help provide math and literacy specialists for both students and for educators, teacher professional development and supplementary curriculum, and arts education.

  • McKinley’s lower enrollment this year in response to the pandemic means less district funding and fewer families to fundraise from, which is why your annual contribution matters so much.

  • While school closures negatively impacted all students, not all students have been affected equally. Low-income families, students of color, immigrants, English learners, and other students from institutionally marginalized communities have and continue to face compounded challenges.

  • 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.
