Last year, many Community School families chose to donate to our direct contribution campaign. The CSA is again offering parents the option of supporting CSA programs through our direct contribution campaign. Through this fundraising option, 100 % of your contribution goes directly to supporting our programs and your donation is tax-deductible.

Your CSA donation pays for a number of activities that enrich your child’s school experience and help strengthen the partnership between parents and teachers here at Community. Last year, we spent over $75 per student on CSA programs and activities such as field trips, cultural enrichment programs, math nights, field/fun day, teacher stipends for classroom materials, and many, many other events.

If you would like to participate with a direct contribution, please return your completed form, along with a check made payable to “CSA” to your child’s teacher in an envelope marked “CSA-Direct Contribution Campaign.” Remember all donations are tax-deductible. Any amount that you can give will help us keep on doing all that we do!

Thank you in advance for your support.

Last year, contributions totaled approximately $7,000!
