This week is the last chance to donate to PS 8’s new fundraising campaign challenge, where your donation could either be doubled or tripled. A parent has agreed to make a $20,000 contribution, with one catch: the amount must first be matched by other donors.
Most contributions will be matched 2-to-1, but for first time PS 8 parents who are donating, the rate will be 3-to-1. A secretary at the school said that she couldn’t reveal how much had been raised so far. If you’re looking to make a donation, you can do so at the school’s website.
