Help Our Kids & School—Contribute Today!!

Help Our Kids & School—Contribute Today!

Dear Crocker Farm Families,

We ask you to please consider contributing to the PGO. You can help the PGO in many ways: by providing goods for bake sales, helping at events like the upcoming Co-operative Field Day, donating to the winter coat drive, etc.—or by making a financial donation, which is what we are asking for now. 

No donation is too small

A contribution of:
  • $9 pays for a ticket to the Fine Arts Center at UMass
  • $7 goes toward a yearbook for a student
  • $35 provides one teacher stipend
  • $150 pays for 6-7 balls or 25 jump ropes for the playground

PGO funds also help supplement:
  • extra snacks
  • music books and supplies
  • back-to-school picnic
  • end-of-year ice cream social
  • school garden supplies
  • field trips
  • teacher requests for additional classroom supplies

Every dollar helps! Money that you give directly enables us to minimize fundraisers, many of which provide the PGO with only a portion of the amount spent. A direct donation now will allow the PGO to focus on community-building events, rather than using precious volunteer time to raise funds for the school. We thank you in advance for your support!

You can donate online by following the link on our blog ( or send a check care of Crocker Farm. Some Crocker Farm families have offered up to $2,000 in matching funds for donations made in October. So donate now and have your donation matched, dollar for dollar. Let’s see if we can raise $4,000 for the school!


The Crocker Farm PGO is a part of the Amherst Regional Public Schools Parent Guardian Organization 501(c)3. Donations to the Crocker Farm PGO are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law, under IRS guidelines.
