    Direct Appeal 2020-21

    Help boost academics through Direct Appeal

    Oct 25, 2020 | Update! Thank you for helping us reach our goal with the PTSA Direct Appeal! We were able to raise $25,000 to support BHS academics — we are so grateful!  The funds will be used to purchase items such as digital teaching tools that allow real time engagement between teachers and students, printers and ink cartridges, whiteboards, and headphones.

    Oct 2020 | It’s that time of year … the PTSA Direct Appeal! The Direct Appeal is the one time of year the PTSA asks for donations to support academics at Ballard HS. The Ballard community has always generously supported the Direct Appeal — we are so grateful — but this time we are doing something different.

    This year, with so many in our community struggling, the Ballard High School Foundation will be doing another round of the Ballard Cares fundraiser in a few weeks. We encourage you to support that important fundraiser if you can. Learn more on November Ballard Cares Information.

    BUT, the PTSA remains committed to supporting BHS teachers as they teach our kids in this unique environment. To that end, we hope to raise $15,000 before Oct. 25, 2020 to assist BHS staff as they create engaging and effective learning opportunities for BHS students.

Many companies will match 100% of their employees’ donations. All donations are tax deductible (Ballard High School PTSA Tax ID #91-1303069). Questions? Contact bhs.ptsa.directappeal@gmail.com
