COUNT ON ME is the annual fundraising campaign of PS 163. 


Your donation will support enrichment programs and classroom supplements that make our school extraordinary, such as: keeping our school walls colorful; art, music and science supplies; supplemental math; library books; and more! 

Our collective support ensures our kids have the best possible public school experience.


Will my donation really make a difference? 

YES! The annual appeal is the largest single contributor to the PTA, making up nearly 50% of the PTA's budget.


How much should I give?

We like to say, "Don't give 'til it hurts. Give 'til it feels good!"


Company Match
