During the 2018-19 school year P.S. 290 will host a Spring Gala Live and Silent Auction that is attended by hundreds of parents, faculty and friends of our school as well as a Fall Camps Only Online Auction.

The auctions will be here before we know it and planning begins with soliciting items over the summer that members inside and outside of our community will want to bid on. Please know that no donation is too small.


If your child has attended a camp this summer, please consider asking your camp director for a donation for our camps online auction in November!


Please consider asking for a donation for our spring auction in April. Donations can include, but do not have to be limited to the following:

  • Hotels
  • B&Bs
  • Jewelry
  • Restaurants
  • Merchants
  • Spas
  • Gym
  • Classes and activities for children.

Please download this handy donation form that can be given directly to vendors in person or by e-mail. The letter accompanying the form explains the solicitation, describes the auction events and provides pertinent information regarding donation submission.
