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.

The PS3 Marathon Team comprises of parents and friends of PS3 who are willing to run the TCS Marathon in November on behalf of PS3. The school sponsors the bib and race fees and in exchange, team members raise funds for the school. It is so successful that it has become one of the top fundraisers for the school.

The Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair is hosted by PS 3 for rare book collectors and book lovers in general, and is an important fundraiser for our school. 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 Auction features artwork, jewelry, dining certificates, vacations, crafts, and everything imaginable that parents and local businesses can possibly donate. This fundraiser is geared for adults.

Coordinators will oversee publicity, food, drink, entertainment, sponsors, donations, decorations, set up & clean up.
