Give $475 now or $58 per month for the rest of the school year to cover the cost of your family. The PS58. Auction and Read-a-thon in Spring, plus smaller events throughout the year will help us raise the additional funds for the 2018-19 budget. Give more if you can — to sponsor other families. Give less if you can’t or prefer to contribute in other ways. We know each family has different abilities to give and are grateful for all contributions!
