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. These funds are put to work in the very school year in which they are raised. 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.

Every gift, regardless of size, enables the PTSA to augment funding available to Gunn to ensure students and staff have access to state-of-the-art educational resources.

What better place is there to invest your tax-deductible, charitable dollars than where your student can benefit directly from your generosity? With enormous pressures on family budgets, we encourage each and every Gunn family to donate whatever amount is within its capabilities — $300 per student is recommended.

To donate, please click here for our webstore. Or bring in a check made out to Gunn PTSA to the office and put it in our box.

Your contribution to the Gunn PTSA may have a multiplier effect if your employer has a gift matching program.

All membership fees and direct appeal contributions are tax deductible. Our Federal tax identification number is noted below.
