Direct Appeal

How You Can Make a Difference

The annual Direct Appeal campaign is a large part of the PTSA’s contribution to Gunn High School. Your Direct Appeal dollars allow the PTSA to grant nearly $100,000 each year to the school for investment in technology, teacher grants, teacher development, and other resources to enhance classroom and extra-curricular learning.

A contribution of $300 per student is recommended but we encourage every Gunn family to donate whatever amount you can! These funds are put to work in the school year in which they are raised.

Donate to Gunn online, or print and complete this online donation form, bring in a check made out to “Gunn PTSA” to the main office, and put it in the PTSA box.

Your direct appeal contribution is tax-deductible and may have a multiplier effect if your employer has a gift matching program.
