Choose How and Where to Donate

There are many convenient ways to support Paul Cuffee School. You can contribute by cash, check, or credit card (Visa or MasterCard), with donations to support our libraries, one of our special funds, or our Annual Fund. All donations are tax deductible and go directly toward programs that enhance students’ learning. Following are a few of the options available for giving to PCS.

Checks with Designated Funds

You can make out a check payable to Paul Cuffee School and designate your contribution by adding “General Library Fund,” one of our special library collections, or Annual Fund in the memo section. Checks should be mailed to Paul Cuffee School, 459 Promenade Street, Providence, RI, 02908. 

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs that will let you double the value of your gift. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, contact your company’s Human Resources Department.

Wish List

Our teachers have created a wish list of classroom tools to enhance learning in math, English/language arts, technology, music, art, and other academic and elective areas. Donations may take the form of new or used goods or funding to purchase items.

Gifts of Stock

You can reap significant tax benefits when you give appreciated securities rather than cash. With a gift of stock, you can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the stock and avoid capital gains tax on the stock’s unrealized appreciation.

Give When You Shop

Paul Cuffee School has formed several partnerships that let you direct funding to our great programs while you shop. 

AmazonSmile
PCS has joined the AmazonSmile program! Just designate PCS as your charity of choice when shopping on Amazon and they will donate 0.5% of your purchase back to us. Log into your Amazon account through AmazonSmile and search for “Paul Cuffee School” to choose us as your recipient organization.

Stop and Shop
You can earn A+ School Rewards with each purchase made using your Stop & Shop Card. At the end of each month, the points you earn will go toward a cash award to the school. Just register your Stop & Shop card once to bring PCS ongoing benefits. To register your card number (beginning with 22), go to the Stop and Shop A+ website and enter Paul Cuffee School’s ID: 08135. You can also go to the customer service desk at any Stop & Shop.

Target
Through Target’s Take Charge of Education program, when you use your Target REDcard credit or debit card, the store will donate 1% of your purchases at any Target store or at Target.com to PCS. To register, go to the Target Take Charge of Education site and enter Paul Cuffee School’s ID: 120306.

DonorsChoose.org
Please visit Donors Choose and search for Paul Cuffee School to find out what teachers and staff have identified as an immediate need for the classrooms and school. You can donate as little as $1 to as much as the cost of the whole project to make special educational projects a reality.

Box Tops for Education
You can find Box Tops for Education tags on hundreds of General Mills products. Just clip Box Tops from the package and send them to your child’s classroom. Every Box Top is worth 10¢ for PCS, so funds can add up quickly. See www.boxtops4education.com for more information.
