Support Janney

Tax-deductible donations to the Janney PTA help fund a variety of services and activities for all Janney students.

Did you know that the Janney PTA spends approximately $785 per student?

That works out to $1,570 for a family with two children at Janney, $2,355 for a family with three children, and $3,140 for a family with four children at Janney.

Even though Janney is one of the largest elementary schools in DC, its DCPS funding is one of the lowest “per-head” of any elementary school in the city. Janney uses as much of its DCPS funding to pay for its teachers as possible, and relies on PTA funds to pay for pretty much everything else:

  • Salaries for ten teacher and support staff positions
  • Technology materials and support
  • Textbooks
  • Instructional materials
  • Basic classroom supplies
  • Teacher professional development
  • Custodial equipment and supplies
  • Substitute teachers
  • Facilities repairs
  • and MUCH, MUCH more
Every donation counts no matter how big or small.

Please consider donating to Janney today to continue to support all of the above efforts for all students.

Spreading your Student Support Fund contribution across multiple payments is also an option. The payment platform does not support automated recurring payments at this time. If you would like to make multiple payments over the year (for example, monthly or quarterly), please include a note in your donation so the PTA Treasurers can mark it accordingly and provide manual reminders to you by email. You will need to log into the system again to make additional payments.

To pay by check, please note the following information on memo section of the check (“SSF”, child’s name, teacher’s name, grade), and then drop it off at PTA box in the front office.

If you have any problems with the payment, please contact the Janney PTA Treasurer. And PLEASE enter your child’s name AND grade.

All SSF donations are tax deductible. The Janney PTA Federal Tax ID Number is 52-1661964.

Check with your employer to see if they offer a matching grant program to double or even triple the amount of your contribution!

Check with your HR Dept directly. You will need to provide them with a donation receipt along with our EIN/Tax ID number. You should receive the SSF receipt email if you donated online or contact Matching Grants Committee to request the receipt if you made the donation by a check. Please let the Matching Grants Committee know that you have submitted the matching grant with your employer so that they can look out for it.

In past years, Janney received matching grants from corporations such as Adobe, Astra Zeneca, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Capital One, CVS, Disney, Fannie Mae, Graham Holdings, HP, News Corp, Pew Trust, Salesforce, Sanofi, UBS, Verizon, and WellsFargo.

Fundraising events at Janney are so fun that you don’t even think of them as fundraising!

Funds raised at events contribute about half of the total funds needed for the PTA operating budget.
