There are many ways to support our school. Fundraisers are organized throughout the school year, so keep an eye on our Sumner School Newsfeed for fun events and shopping opportunities that benefit our school.
Direct monetary donations are always appreciated and help with funding field trip, enrichment programs, and needed supplies for our school including technology purchases to enhance remote learning. Because of the current uncertainty of mail delivery and building occupancy, we encourage online donations to the school.
Online donations at this site are deposited with our fiscal agent, the Boston Educational Development Fund (BEDF). BEDF is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that serves as a fiscal partner to Boston Public Schools. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Detailed financial information is available on request. If you would like the funds to go to a specific initiative like technology purchases, enrichment programs, field trips, etc. please indicate that in the memo or notes section when you submit your donation. Unspecified donations will go into our general fund to support what is needed most.
Staff at the school also organize classroom fundraising projects through organizations such as DonorsChoose. More information about current giving opportunities can be found here.
The Sumner School Family Council also raises funds to cover meeting and event costs as well as support the school and cover funding gaps. More information about Family Council Fundraisers can be found here.
