Public School Foundation

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation (PSF) is the only independent, non-profit organization that is dedicated to mobilizing community support for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. The PSF focuses on fundraising and grant giving for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school district. The PSF believes that all students deserve the best possible education and that teachers are our most valuable resource. The PSF is an independent organization from the MES PTA, and the MES PTA is very grateful for all the PSF does to support the McDougle Elementary School Community!

Congratulations to Ms. Cobb, who is the PSF 2019-2020 Upper Elementary Chair for Excellence in Teaching Innovation – Grades 3-5 (2-year award)

PSF - Help for Families Fundraiser (2020)

CHCCS has launched a fundraising effort with the help of our friends at the Public School Foundation. Dr. Jim Causby, the Interim Superintendent, hopes to raise $100,000 in private donations simply to help families in our community with whatever they need. Any money raised will be used at the discretion of our school social workers, who do such a great job building relationships with our families, and who know the specific needs. In some cases, a family may need help paying a bill. Others may need medicine, baby diapers or even gas for their car. It really doesn’t matter what the need is, we just want to offer whatever assistance we can. Since my arrival on July 1, many of you have been kind enough to ask how you can help. This would be a great way. Making a donation is simple:

  • Click here to access the site

  • In the first drop down box, select “other”

  • In the other box, type in “COVID Relief”

  • Submit your information just like making an online purchase

We want to offer a special thank you to Madeline Blobe, Executive Director of the Public School Foundation, for working with CHCCS to make this fundraiser so user-friendly. We are all eager to assist our families, and I know you are too.

Thank you for joining CHCCS and the PSF in this worthwhile effort. Any amount you can contribute will be put to good use and greatly appreciated.

Thank you MES Families.pdf
