Annual Appeal

McCarthy-Towne is a publicly funded school, but the school budget does not cover all you see at McT. Every year, the PTSO raises funds to enhance the educational experience for our children. Among other things, these funds supplement the number of classroom assistant hours, provide grants for teachers to create special classroom programs, and support field trip scholarships.

100% of your donation to our annual appeal goes directly to the school, is tax deductible, and is eligible for corporate matching gifts. To maintain the current level of support we enjoy, the PTSO needs to raise $78,000 this year from the McT community. With 490 students enrolled at McT, it would take a contribution of $160 per student to meet our funding needs and would provide your student with a priceless return each and every school day.

We understand that this amount is not possible for every family and for those with multiple kids at McT, the total really adds up. If you choose to donate to the Annual Appeal, please give at whatever level you feel comfortable and know that donations of every amount are appreciated.
