Why Donate?

Your generous donations are greatly needed to support a wide variety of activities and programs for Franklin students, families, and staff.

In the past, we've asked families to give $100-$150 per student. (And use company matching if you can!! Last year a third of our budget came from company matching!)

Due to economy, we know many budgets are tight, but if you're in a position to give, we will use the money to support kids, teachers, and the Franklin community. The PTA is working hard to make this year great for our school, in spite of the obstacles. 

The PTA has a full plan to support Franklin community and staff this year. Click here to get the details on everything we're planning with the help of your generous donations.

A few examples of planned PTA-funded events and programs and events are:

  • Teacher training and classroom supplies
  • PE & music supplies
  • Library supplies, including e-books and replacements for the books that weren’t returned last year
  • Health & wellness programs
  • Virtual community events
  • Enrichment programs
  • Teacher and staff appreciation
  • And much, much more

This is only made possible through your generosity! Thank you for giving to the Ben Franklin PTA to enable these programs to take place.  We appreciate your support.
