3Fund is the primary funding source for the school’s various art-based programs and helps to fill a gap in the school’s budget each year. It’s a direct call for support, with a goal of 100% parent participation regardless of donation amount. It’s underway now and the push will continue through January, though donations are accepted throughout the year. A table is set up for donations in the lobby on many days, or checks can be mailed or dropped off in the office with Raquel. Or easier still make your Tax-Deductible Donation now by click the Donate Button below. Remember this year it also includes your child’s classroom funds.

The Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair is hosted by PS 3 for rare book collectors and book lovers in general, and is the school’s second major fundraiser after the Direct Drive. Hundreds of booksellers across the country bring their wares to booths at the school, and people from all over the city (and outside of it as well) visit PS 3 to catch this distinctive book fair.
The Author’s Reading in early 2010 was a literary night out on the town at the Flatiron Lounge with author parents Joseph O’Neill and Susan Minot. If you’re a parent with special talents in the realm of theater, film, the culinary arts, music, visual arts, dance or fashion, consider having a school fundraiser – or let us plan one for you. Parents with access to event spaces are needed as well.
The P.S. 3 Website features deals for parents that ultimately will benefit the school; for example, the A.O.C. Wine fundraiser, where a portion of your wine purchase funnels back to the school – so you can drink, be merry, and support PS 3 all at once. Also on the website is information about the Children’s Film Festival (and other fantastic NYC events) so you can go out for a night on the town/ to a cultural event and simultaneously support P.S. 3.
The Auction features artwork, clothes, vacations, crafts, and everything imaginable that parents and local businesses can possibly donate. This fundraiser is geared for adults. An array of wines, a great assortment of food and live music is offered, along with the ability to view auctioned items online before the bidding begins. Coordinators will oversee publicity, food, drink, entertainment, sponsors, donations, decorations, set up & clean up. Download the donation letter packet to print it out and give to people as well email it.
The Children’s Book Fair is usually held during the week of parent-teacher conferences in April and provides an opportunity for parents and kids to buy books, journals, pens, calendars, and other items at school – while supporting PS 3 in the process.
This event has no chair at this time.
