We are excited to announce the kick off of the Anchorage School PTA’s new annual ANCHOR FUND CAMPAIGN beginning September 15, 2017. When you donate to the ANCHOR FUND, you are giving directly back to programs and resources that help fuel student imagination and growth. Energy fills the halls as students learn about a new artist, participate in a Junior Great Books discussion, and explore technology with new green screens, computers and printers, all with your support.

This year the APTA will continue to improve the school grounds by raising funds for our ATHLETIC FIELD PROJECT, featuring a DIGITAL WI-FI SCORE BOARD, OUTDOOR RESTROOM ACCESS and an ATHLETIC STORAGE ROOM! This project will include a sidewalk to access the restrooms, emergency equipment access for coaches who use the field, and storage for both coach and field maintenance equipment.

Removing the “ASK” from the Auction allows us to begin fundraising for the APTA operating budget and our ATHLETIC FIELD PROJECT at the beginning of the school year. It also allows us to have a smaller silent auction, which historically has required more volunteer hours than any other APTA project. Being able to move these volunteer hours into other programs within the school, where parents directly help the students and faculty, is our goal.

The ANCHOR FUND will work in conjunction with the annual Auction to raise funds for the APTA operating budget and the ATHLETIC FIELD PROJECT.


With your support, the ANCHOR FUND should raise a monetary goal of $80,000. Although this is a large amount of money, it breaks down to only $25 per month-per student for the nine months that school is in session, OR $223 per student. These dollars will enrich the school experience for all students across all grades.


Whether you can give $5, $50, $500 or more, you are helping to enrich students’ educational experiences and our school community. All donations are 100% tax deductible and are kept strictly confidential. Please don’t forget to submit paperwork to your employer to double your donation if you work for a company that offers matching gifts.

If you have donated to the “ASK” or to the silent auction in the past, please consider donating to the ANCHOR FUND.
