A+ Schools seeks individual donations to support
our work because:
We need the freedom to advocate for equity in schools based on what the research tells us works, no matter how popular; and
We can ensure our independence as an advocate for greater equity for undeserved students, particularly our African-American students.
Thank you for supporting us as we grow a movement of parents, students and community members committed to greater equity and excellence for all Pittsburgh Public Schools children. Your contribution not only supports the valuable work of A+ Schools Staff, but just as importantly, demonstrates your commitment to our most vulnerable children who need a strong voice speaking out for them in our schools.
You can support our work by donating online today, or call our office at (412) 697-1298. You can either complete the form below or go to the Pittsburgh Foundation’s website to learn more about us and to provide a tax-deductible donation.
