MAKE A DONATION & Annual Appeal

The Boerum Hill School for International Studies is a remarkable school with dedicated teachers, who build an inclusive classroom environment, and give our students an inspiring well rounded education. That said, budgets are tight, and demands are greater. Our Annual Appeal is a vital way to raise money for YOUR child’s enrichment.

With our school growing rapidly, and the loss of Title I funds this year, your support is needed more than ever. EVERY amount donated goes toward closing the gaps in programming caused by these cuts, and to supplement the cost of the supplies and activities we need.

The PTA supports many of the programs that makes our school so special: Soccer, Foreign Exchange, in class programming, Grade Trips, Library, Dance, Culinary, and more. In many cases the money we raise is the only funding these programs receivel We also raise money for every single classroom and specialist, for the purchase of many of the school’s supplies. Last year we were able to fund 4 computers for the 8th grade!


Our goal is to raise $180 per child!  That’s $1 per school day; less than a cup of coffee!

Please make checks payable to: BHS PTA, Inc., or click below:

(please write Annual Appeal in notes)


Remember, no tax deductible amount is too small (or too large)! The PTA does not disclose the amounts of donations. It’s our community, our school, our kids. Let’s show NYC we’re not just the best school, with the best kids, but we have the best parents!

The PTA also welcomes direct program support in part or whole, matching corporate gifts, and also looks at all suggested fundraising ideas brought forth by families.

Thank you in advance for your kind donation!
