New PTA Generosity.com Campaign to Support Teachers!

The BSGE PTA is launching a new Generosity.com campaign, this one focused on our teachers!  The PTA has always supported the work of our teachers, and now we are giving you the opportunity to do so directly!  Obviously we will fund our afterschool program, but we also hope to help expand teacher training, including IB training, professional development, and training focused on the social emotional needs of our students to create classrooms more conducive to learning.  We are hoping to encourage more teachers to use Engrade to improve the connection between teachers and parents by expanding teacher access to computers.  And we also want to ensure that teachers have the supplies they need in the classroom.

Our suggested annual donation is $500, which is actually less than other comparable NYC public high schools – and please consider that BSGE provides our students with an education equivalent to that of a private school.   If you are fortunate and can give more, please do.  If $500 is difficult, please send us a smaller donation.  We are grateful for all donations.

Please join our effort (and please ask your friends and family!) by donating through this link:

We know that many of you have appreciated the ease of donating through Generosity.com.  The last campaign raised over $12,000!

As always:  The BSGE PTA is a 501(c)3 charity, so 1) all donations are tax deductible, and 2) many companies will match charitable donations from their employees, so PLEASE check with the human resources department at your company.  Matching is an easy way to double the impact of your contribution.  Many thanks to all the parents who have already done so!!!!

If you have purchased a ticket, you can return it to the Senior Council member you purchased it from. We will keep you informed of our new date and look forward to all the BSGE talent coming out for that event.
