Giving

From contributing directly to the PTSA Annual Fund to simply doing your every day shopping, there are lots of ways to give and make a positive impact.

PTSA Annual Fund col-otaf-duotone-542w176h-copy

When you donate to the PTSA Annual Fund, you directly support the many programs, academies, clubs, field trips, productions, sports teams, learning opportunities –– and much more –– that make Tech such an inspiring community for our 2,000 students to grow and thrive.

Here’s a taste of where your contributions go.

We greatly appreciate donations of any amount at any time of year. Automatic monthly donations, in particular, are a crucial component of the Annual Fund, and provide a steady source of funds that our school and students depend on. All donations are tax-deductible (ID #94-6174624). A PayPal account is not required. Click either option below.

Support the school with a generous, one-time gift.
