Campaign for the Future is off to a great start! Help us grow!

Dear Members of STEMteachersNYC,


It’s hard to believe that the organization started by 25 of us in 2011 has grown to 324 members – with the rate of increase now going exponential! I’ve been involved in start-ups before, but never as a volunteer alongside a bunch of volunteers like these – the level of energy and amount of pure drive behind STEMteachersNYC is quite extraordinary!

For long-term survival as an organization, we need a paid staff to carry out the key organizational tasks. Practically speaking, we simply must have a part-time Registrar, Equipment Manager, Executive Assistant, and Executive Director, as well as reliable help from a bookkeeper/accountant and a lawyer. To make this possible, we have established a Campaign for the Future, with a goal of $50,000. This would enable us to institutionalize our young, rapidly-growing organization and to continue providing the high-quality, low-cost workshops that have become our trademark.


We are off to a great start: I am happy to announce that we have received a challenge grant for $12,500. And I'm also now very proud to say that all 11 members of our Board of Directors have made commitments to help us meet the match!


Can you help us raise the rest of the $12,500 match? If we succeed, we will be halfway to the goal of our Campaign for the Future!

There are two ways to contribute:

1) By mailing a check. (We prefer this; it avoids credit card fees.) Print the form below, fill out, and mail it to the address on the form with a check payable to AMTA-STEMteachersNYC.

2) By credit card online. Go to the AMTA website <http://tinyurl.com/stnycdonate> and click on the “Donate to STEMteachersNYC” button, which is 3rd from the top(For any amount up to $1,000.)

STEMteachersNYC  is dedicated to interchange and interaction among teachers of various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines. Our general purpose is to cultivate excellence in STEM teaching and to promote learning, self-confidence and success for our students.
