You can help!
You can have a tremendous impact on the funds raised this year by (A) donating an experience, merchandise, or service or soliciting donations on behalf of PS29 – or (B) helping us find business sponsors to underwrite the event.
Do you have a weekend home? Do you have access to backstage passes to an event? Are you a business owner that likes to support public education? Do you have a friend, neighbor or relative that can donate a unique experience near or far, a service, gift card, tickets to an event or other? Do you have a special skill to teach?
Sponsorships may be purchased here. This is a great way for business owners to support the PS29 Gala + Auction while making a tax-deductible contribution.
Donation items may be submitted here (preferred method). You will also find a downloadable, printable form on that link. Hard copies will be available in the PTA office, Room 105.
Check out our suggested list of “60 Great Donation Ideas.“ While greatly appreciated, we ask that you do not purchase gift cards to be sold at the auction as they may sell for less than you paid. Instead, consider making a donation via our auction website. If you would like assistance with a donation item or sponsorship, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year this amazing community of superheroes comes together to reach our fundraising goals. We thank you for your tremendous support.
We look forward to celebrating our collective efforts together on Friday, May 3rd at 26 Bridge!

What do the funds raised through the Auction pay for?
Funds raised help pay for enrichment programs (e.g., arts, music, drama, and science programs, chess, instrumental music, coding and sustainable gardening), capital improvements (e.g., water filtration system) and assistant teachers in Kindergarten classrooms — things that would be cut if we relied solely on funding from the DOE. Bidding generously in the Auction is a direct way for you to enrich your child’s school experience.
