Donate Now: 

No amount too small - or too large!


Why Contribute?

Every year, our budget is cut. We are asked to do more, with far less.  We are left with fewer and fewer dollars to spend towards programming we know is important to our students and families. If you, family, friends or companies you know want to support our programming there are a few ways to make tax-deductible donations.  Here is an example of some of our costs and some ideas of how to donate:  

  • Full Time Art, Music an Physical Education teacher: $150,000

  • Library: $50,000

  • Technology- Computers, Smartboards, Printers, Laptops- $15,000

  • Classroom essentials for teachers (markers, paper, chart paper): $5,000

  • Family Fun Events (Ice Skating, STAR Week, 5th grade overnight field trip): $4,500

  • Substitute teachers so our teachers can attend Professional Development- $5,000

  • Student trip subsidies: $3,000

  • Supplementary math and science programming: $8,000

  • Staff Development: +$35,000

  • Recess supplies: $300

...and much more.

Many thanks to ALL of our families for their many contributions to the school!

One time Donation

STAR Academy PTA, 121 East 3rd Street, New York NY 10009, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit EIN 47-5531354.
All donations are 100% tax deductible.
Donate School Supplies

Every year, the PTA partners with SchoolKidz to allow parents to order supply kits, which are delivered to the school the first week of school. A small percentage of the cost of the kit goes towards the PTA. 

In addition, the PTA donates 1 kit per classroom to provide additional supplies to teachers.

Teachers spend hundreds of dollars out of their own pocket on school supplies. If your company would like to donate school supplies, our school is always in need of items such as:

  • Copy Paper

  • Markers

  • Pens

  • Pencils

  • Binders

  • Folders

Please contact our school secretary Felicita Carmona at to coordinate a donation.

Our teachers are constantly advocating for the needs of their children and thinking of creative ways to get classroom supplies with constantly dwindling school budgets. In the past few years, they have received a total of $21,000.

Teachers often write grants for items that their children need and post them to the website DonorsChoose. You can make a tax-deductible donation of any amount towards  the projects  they post. Also feel free to post links to them on your social media.
