Thank you to all who have bought tickets for the Buckman Auction! As the biggest fundraiser of the year, the annual auction is the Buckman community’s chance to ensure all students reach their full potential to “Be You at Buckman.”

Every year, the Buckman Foundation turns to the school community to ask for direct donations to support arts and literacy staffing at our school. The Year-End Ask campaign launches on #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving, and runs until December 31.
Please consider making your contribution. Giving is easy: drop of a check in the Foundation mailbox or give online at allhandsraised.org (be sure to select “PPS” and then “Buckman School” from the drop-downs). You can spread out your gift into monthly payments or make a one-time contribution.
Giving at any level helps! If we reach 75 donors – of any amount – our Challenge Match sponsors have agreed to contribute $8,500 collectively to the school! A gift of $5 can make all the difference.
