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

Janney’s PTA will spend ~$785 per student this year.

Our goal is to have 100% of Janney families contribute to the Student Support Fund – any amount!

Every donation helps (and is tax-deductible)! To help more families give what they can, we offer recurring donations so you can give monthly or quarterly. Or, choose a custom donation amount. No matter how you give – or how much! – your donation makes a difference.

Classes with 100% participation get a pizza party!
Please enter your child’s name and grade in the memo box when donating.
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

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.

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

Double or even triple your tax-deductible contribution to the Janney Student Support Fund by asking your employer to match your donation.

Check with your HR Department directly. 

Many employers have funds set aside specifically for this type of charitable giving. You will need to provide them with a donation receipt along with our EIN/Tax ID number. You should receive the Student Support Fund receipt email if you donated online. Contact the Matching Grants Committee to request the receipt if you made a donation by a check.

Feel free to adapt the below:

Hello, I am writing to seek a matching employer donation to the donation that I made to my child’s elementary school. I understand our organization provides matching grants to nonprofits (OR Does our company provide matching grants?). Attached (or below) is my receipt to the Janney Elementary PTA Student Support Fund. The Janney PTA Federal Tax ID Number is 52-1661964. Please let me know if additional information is needed. Specific questions can also be directed to Thank you! 

Email to let us know that you have submitted the matching grant request with your employer so we can look out for it. Also, if you learn that your organization will match, please let us know. 

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.

Many thanks for taking a few extra minutes to seek out these extra funds that make a difference in supporting our kids’ education at Janney!
