Like you, we want the very best for our kids — especially when it comes to their education. Every day that they walk through the doors of their school, we expect them to be happy and healthy, challenged and engaged. We want PS 9 to help make this phase of our children’s lives wonderful, and we want it to lay the groundwork for an even more extraordinary future – just as you do.
We’re pleased to say that generous donations from PS 9 families and friends in recent years have contributed enormously to our school’s drive to meet this standard! But the reality is that neither the PS 9 we have, nor the PS 9 we aspire to, is free. So, with your support, we can preserve the great school we already know and reach the fantastic place we all hope to go. Every donation, regardless of size, truly makes a difference! Please read on to learn about all the ways in which you can give to PS 9.

Fairway: Help PS 9 while you shop at Fairway! PS 9 has a partnership with Fairway Markets, through their Community Partners program. Pick up a PS 9 Fairway card at the PTO table in the school lobby (or see a PTO officer), show it to the cashier during check-out, and PS 9 receives 3% of proceeds!

Goodshop: Sign up as a “supporter” of PS 9 on GoodShop.com. Access your favorite merchant websites – Children’s Place, Old Navy, Land’s End [etc.] through GoodShop, and the PTO or PS 9 (accounts for both) may receive a percentage of your purchases in cash back. It’s a win-win! http://bit.ly/ps9goodshop
Schoola: Cleaning out your kid’s closet? Schoola will ship you a bag to fill with gently used children’s clothing to sell on their site. Shipping is on them, they do all the work. The PTO receives a portion of the funds generated by the sale. http://bit.ly/ps9schoola
Box Tops: Save Box Tops that can be found in common household products. PS 9 gets 10 cents per box top – it adds up! You can drop your Box Tops in the collection box located on the PTO bulletin board next to the auditorium, or bring them to a PTO meeting. http://www.boxtops4education.com/
Cash or Check donations: The good old fashioned way! Make checks out to “PS 9 PTO” and drop in the PTO box in the main office, or mail it with your regular mail. Or, leave with a PTO Officer. Donate online using PayPal or make a one-time or recurring check donation through your bank’s online system.http://www.ps9brooklyn.org/our-families/ps-9-pto/donate/
