Help The 3Fund “Giving Tree” Grow


We are looking forward to another great year at PS3! What makes our school so special is the way we all come together to ensure our children have an innovative and inspiring education. The 3FUND enables us to do this.

What is The 3FUND? The 3FUND is PS3′s annual fund campaign. It is our most cost-effective fundraising effort. 99% of your gift goes directly to supporting students. The 3FUND  fully pays for academic-support teachers, assistant teachers, music and clay programs, recess aides, classroom funds and a Science and Artists in Residence (SAIR) stipend for each class, healthy lunches, school-wide supplies and more! It costs $725 per student to provide this vital academic and enrichment programming.

What can you do? Give to The 3FUND! Whatever level gift you make is welcome and needed. But, please consider that $725 per student breaks down to just $15 a week or $60 per month. Becoming a monthly donor makes it easier to generously support our children.

You can sign up for monthly giving or make a one-time donation at http://ps3nyc.org/embrace. Checks made out to PS3 SCC can be left with Raquel in the office.

This year we have built a 3FUND “Giving Tree” in the lobby. After you make your donation, look for a green envelope from us in your child’s homework folder. Inside you will find your “Giving Tree” leaf which we would like you and your kids to decorate, color, embellish, inscribe, or bedazzle any way that you see fit. When you’re done, you can place it back in the green envelope and drop it into the trunk of our “Giving Tree” in the lobby.  Then watch as the  3FUND “Giving Tree” grows with each and every donation – big, small, and in-between. Thank you again for your kind support and generosity.
