Annual Giving

Our 2021-2022 goal is to raise $200 per child to support blended and remote learning, and when we can return to school at 100% capacity. Every bit counts! For example, if everyone just donated as much as $25 per child, we’d have $10,000 to put toward programs and supplies.


Sign up for recurring donations to get a free PS 295 pencil case + mask,

or make a one-time donation of $50 (pencil case), $100 (mask and case).


There are no fees charged to the school for Zelle or check payments.



PS 295 Parent Teacher Association

Amazon Smile

When you shop via, Amazon donates to PS 295 at no cost to you. Good for Amazon Fresh and with your EBT card, too. Click HERE to designate PS 295 Parent Teacher Association, Inc. as your charity.

Cohort Caregivers 


Cohort caregivers create a class directory and generally support the teacher(s). This can include sending out information, arranging Zoom read-alouds, and much more.

Non-Cash Support

We appreciate any kind of support you’re able to give! You can ask your child’s teachers what they need for classroom supplies, volunteer to help with PTA events and fundraisers, and encourage friends and family to attend and support the school.

For more guidance, reach out to our Parent-Teacher Association.

The Give 20/20 Challenge

We challenge you to help PS 295 with a goal of $20 per month or 20 volunteer hours per school year. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteer opportunities exist. 
We value all of our families and our school would not be what it is today without your support.  This is a wonderful community because of the families that are part of it and we hope that you take up the challenge to continue supporting the PTA.

Mutual Aid


As this worldwide COVID-19 pandemic continues, some of you have offered help, and some of you may need assistance in a variety of ways.


Thank you for your generosity, and thank you for your trust.


This is not charity. Our goal is to match those who have a need with those who have extra. 


As a community we have shared over $12,000.
