What is the Direct Donation Campaign?

  • The PTA's largest source of fundraising each year

  • It is not tied to a specific school or PTA event

  • For more details read on or check out the Direct Donation FAQs

How can our family donate?

  • Pay by check made out to “Parkside Montessori PTA” - mail to the school (1685 Eisenhower St., San Mateo, CA 94403) or drop off at the school office and leave in the PTA box.

  • Pay online - Click the donate button above or below to see online payment options. Payments are processed using LumaPay, powered by Stripe. You do not need an account to donate.

How much should our family donate?

  • The PTA suggested donation of $650 per student or more if your family is in a position to donate more to Parkside Montessori. (However, donations of ANY amount are encouraged and welcome. All donations are tax deductible!)

  • A donation of ANY amount that is appropriate for your family is welcomed and appreciated!
  • Find out if your employer offers charitable donation matching - this is an easy way to double your donation!* 

  • Ask family and friends to donate and support your child's school.

  • All donations are tax deductible

  • Recurring donations (choose your amount, choose your schedule and we'll take care of the rest). 

We are seeking 100% participation from the school community
