Who We Are
And What We Do
The Ardsley Panthers Family Fund (PFF) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) all-volunteer corporation that was created in 2020 by a small group of Ardsley parents who saw an unmet need in our community. We raise funds to provide scholarships for students who need financial assistance to participate alongside their peers in basic educational and after school activities/ programs offered at our schools.
We formed PFF because there were no local financial aid programs or scholarships available for these students, many of whom qualify for free/reduced fee lunch. We're grateful for our district's support and work directly with the district and with the staff at Concord Road Elementary school and at Ardsley Middle School to obtain each school year’s “wish-list” to set our fundraising goals and to make sure that scholarships are provided to deserving students whose identity is kept confidential; unknown to PFF.
We hope to broaden our scholarships to the High School in the near future.
We fundraise in our Ardsley Community and are seeking local business sponsors and local organizations to help support this wonderful cause. We deliver 100% of proceeds directly to deserving students with help from our schools staff.
Your donations will help this year with the following unmet needs:
Holiday Season and in the Summer: $180 will send a Grocery Store Gift Card for Food during the Holiday Season or in the Summer Months when District's Food Services are Closed.
Summer: $700 will cover a week at a Day Camp in the Summer
Summer: $750 will send a student who is struggling academically to the Summer Learning Academy Camp at CRS in the Summer
$125 will cover a scholarship for an enriching after school class
$125 will provide 5 sessions of tutoring with an AHS student for a student in AMS who needs academic support
We know you have many good causes to choose from to donate hard earned money. By giving to PFF, even the smallest amount will make a big difference, right here, in our community. We hope you choose to give to PFF and are extremely grateful for your donation.
