Family Contributions

Thank you for your generous contribution to support enrichment programs at The Earth School! Every donation -- from $5 to $500 -- is appreciated and helps to educate the whole child.Your donation is fully tax deductible; the Earth School PA is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Do you like predictability? Are you a creature of habit? You can donate $5 - $100 / month. 
(It's a habit we support.)


Being an Earth School parent means you are automatically part of a great group called the Earth School Parents Association (a.k.a. the ESPA). 
 (We’re so modest and very happy to have you.)

The Earth School values and needs engaged families: your ideas, your talents, your humor and your financial support! We know every family is different, but we hope every family will contribute in some way. There are many opportunities to participate in the ESPA: attend monthly PA meetings to share your ideas and have your voice heard; run a fundraiser; help out at the many school events throughout the year; write grants or help out on the rooftop farm. 

We also need your financial support and no contribution is too small.  The school needs you and the children need you to fill in the gaps the DOE's budget cuts have left in our great enrichment programs.  Last year, the ESPA raised approximately $100,000!  Our collective hard work really pays off and helps support the little people we love.

If you can, a donation of $250.00 per child ($25/month from September – June) from every family will fully fund the ESPA's budget for the 2017-18 school year. That's about $1.50/day, which is less than a cup of NYC coffee. What?! And you get so much more than a short-lived caffeine buzz. You help educate our kids!

This is just a small taste of what our PA pays for: 

  • Outstanding music education through Third Street Music (Pre-K-2nd grades) 
  • Inspiring dance education with Arts Connection (3rd-5th grades)
  • Partial camp tuition for 3rd – 5th graders 
  • Professional Development and essential classroom supplies for our incredible teachers (benefits all grades!) 
  • Cherished community events throughout the year (benefits kids and grown-ups!) 

Your financial contribution is essential to keeping these enrichments in place. We don’t want to lose them. THANK YOU for anything you can contribute! 

You can use your credit card to contribute online through PayPal to the left. If you’d prefer to write a check, please make it payable to “The Earth School PA.”
