Donate Online

As with any school, quality teaching must be supported with a quality facility and appropriate supplies. Tyler Elementary’s principal, its teachers, and its parents have the vision to become one of the highest achieving schools in the district, but we need your help. Your online donation today goes directly to the Tyler PTA to ensure that every penny you donate is spent at Tyler Elementary and not elsewhere. Whether supporting the Playworks program, mobile computer labs, or supplemental school uniforms for those in need, your donation improves the educational experience for all Tyler students. These young children need many heroes in their lives to make sure they reach their full potential. Be one of those heroes and donate today!

The Tyler Elementary PTA has been approved for 501(c)(3) status. Your donation may qualify for a tax deduction.

Matching Gifts

Please ask your company about its matching gifts program – the process is usually very simple and it’s a great way to increase the value of your donation!

Thousands of companies, including corporations, foundations, nonprofits, and associations, match their employees’ charitable contributions – sometimes for as much as double the amount of the initial gift. In addition to matching gifts of cash by their employees, some employers even match gifts made by employee spouses, retirees and board members.  Click here to access a search engine that may help you determine if your employer has a matching gifts program.
