P.S. 84 is an Upper West Side elementary school (K-5) serving a diverse community, that features a monolingual, Spanish and French dual-language programs — it is the only Manhattan school with all three offerings.

Footsteps away from Central Park, PS84 is a small and diverse neighborhood school. An engaged community of families supports and is actively involved in a rich offering of arts, culture, and technology during the school day and beyond.

The Gala and Auction are the most important fundraising events of the year at P.S. 84, and we hope you will consider supporting the event.

Where Does The Money Go?

The Department of Education primarily funds for the main classroom teacher – but our school needs to raise more than $300,000 each year to provide for all the extras that makes PS84 special.

The success of the Gala & Auction depends on parent solicitations and contributions.

Donations are 100% tax deductible – The Fund for P.S. 84, Inc. is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization

Gala and Auction fundraising are going toward:

  • Teaching Assistants (K-2nd grade)
  • Math and reading coaches
  • Librarian and library supplies
  • Recess aides and enrichment
  • Garden teacher and garden supplies
  • Classroom technology
  • Nursing supplies and health programs
  • Wellness education

Gala: After 2 years, we’re back!

Parents Garden’s Nights

Join us to celebrate the PS 84 community in the heart of our school, our Garden. These monthly gatherings will help parents meet and get to know each other, over small bites, feel good music and signature cocktails*.
Building Community One Flower at the Time!

Join the team: We need your help!

The gala and auction are only organized by P.S84 parents who, like everyone else, are already extremely busy with their lives. But our school also depends on us, on having a gala, auction, and other activities created to raise funds and make sure we have a great school for our kids. We need your help with any time you could spare, any donation you could make (items for the auction and/or products for the gala). Join us now!
