Ways to Give

Donate

All gifts are greatly appreciated. Please feel free to make your contribution via the following ways:

  • Make a donation via PayPal



      • Mail your check, payable to Park Slope Schoolhouse, to Park Slope Schoolhouse, Attn: 556 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11215.

    Like many independent schools, Park Slope Schoolhouse is a non-profit and we rely on other sources of income to fund programs, in addition to tuition. The tuition that comes in only covers a percentage of the total cost of educating each child. Contributions from our Annual Appeal and fundraising events help support programs such as Bilingual Birdies, music classes, the green wall, the sensory gym and staff development workshops. Please consider making a tax deductible gift. While large donations are very helpful, any amount helps.
