Annual Appeal – Help us reach our goal

This year our goal is to get 100% Participation from our amazing community!

We are hoping that every family will participate in this fundraising endeavor. No amount is too small (or big) to give to the PTO – and all gifts make a difference. With your financial help, all children at Bigelow can enjoy many exciting, enriching and fun educational programs. Learn more here.

To make your gift online by credit card just click here: Donate online. Or you can send a check to: Bigelow PTO at 42 Vernon Street, Newton, MA 02458 – download form here.

Matching gifts are a great way to maximize your donation and can double or triple your gift to education. Please click here for a partial list of companies that offer to match employee donations.


All donations – large or small – are greatly appreciated and will help us achieve all that the PTO sets out to doA thank you to those of you who have already donated!!

You can be a Big part of our Big Night: donate an auction item!

We need 60 items for our Big Night Silent Auction on March 24th at the Cambridge Boat Club. Can you donate an item for our fun, festive night??

Here are a few ideas:

  • Offer your vacation home for a weekend or week away
  • Put together a theme basket of complimentary items such as a wine basket -assorted bottles of vino & glasses; a lottery card wreath – make a circular wreath of lottery tickets; an olive oil presentation -olive oil, olive dish, crackers, fancy napkins on a rustic tray
  • Game night package – t-shirts, banners, insulated cups etc – of your favorite sports team
  • A gift certificate to your favorite restaurant, coffeehouse or movie theatre
  • Host a dinner party, football game or cocktail party – host a gathering at your house and your friends will bid on it!

Please contact Meredith Andrews, Big Night Committee Chairperson, at if you have any questions.
