Burton HS PTSA Holiday Fund 2020

This year the Burton PTSA Holiday Fund will help cover the $30,000 cost of AP tests for our students. This fundraiser will allow our students to contribute $5 per test (as in previous years) instead of the full cost of $95, a financial hardship for many. 

Our annual fundraiser runs from November 16, 2020 through December 31, 2020. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated!

- Give online by clicking the Donate button at the bottom of this webpage.

- If you prefer to donate with a check, please make it payable to the Burton HS PTSA and mail it to: Burton HS PTSA, P.O. Box 34074, San Francisco, CA 94134.

- If you work for a company that has a matching program you can double your contribution! Check with your HR department.
