As you can probably guess, fundraising for the PTSA is going to look a lot different this year given that we can’t safely run many of our regular events. That’s why we’re asking families to make their full tax deductible donation now, at the beginning of the year, using our online donation site .
But donating in cash is not the only way you can support our work in the community. We’ve partnered with a number of local and national partners -- including Amazon, Stop and Shop and DeCicco’s -- who’ve pledged to make donations on your behalf to the PTSA whenever you shop with them. You can even set the Bulldog Family Fund as your preferred charity when you are using Share your Wish. Getting set-up is quick and easy. Read on to learn more.
To benefit our schoolchildren, the Irvington PTSA has teamed up with the Amazon Smile Foundation.
By specifying Irvington NY PTSA when you buy on AmazonSmile, you’ll enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com, but at no cost to you, 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases will go toward helping local families in need and toward funding PTSA programs that directly benefit Irvington’s school kids.
To participate, click on "Shop Now" below to visit our Amazon Smile site. You will be prompted to enter your existing Amazon sign-in information, and set Irvington NY PTSA as your preferred charity.

Share Your Wish
Share Your Wish, an organization started by an Irvington family, allows kids to “share” their birthday with up to three charitable organizations of their choosing. Guests contribute to the child’s birthday page, and after the birthday, Share Your Wish distributes the money collected between the child and the charities the child selected.
We would be incredibly honored and grateful if you were to choose our Bulldog Family Fund as an option for your guests next time you host an event.
