Donate & Volunteer
The Annual Fund is the primary way that the PTSA generates the needed funds to support the many programs at Galileo. Donations are used to support teacher/classroom stipends, educational enrichment grants, Galileo community events, World Party, student leadership and more.
Corporate Matching Donation
Make your donation go twice as far! Your employer may match your Annual Fund donation. Contact your Human Resources administrator to see if your company supports matching grants.
Use the Tax ID # and mailing address in the Annual Fund Form and be sure that the matching fund donation is made payable to Galileo Academy PTSA.
Five Easy Ways to Raise Money for Galileo While You Shop
Need sports equipment or clothing? Want to get a discount AND a donation? Join the Sports Basement Basementeers program. When you register, choose Galileo and you will receive a 10% discount on your purchases and the school will receive a 10% donation.
Kids always need school supplies, too. Office Depot will donate 5% of your qualifying purchase to Galileo. Provide Galileo’s school ID #70014009 when you shop in the store or online.
