Back by popular demand!!!  The PTA is once again partnering with Fairway to sell its gift cards to the P.S. 40 community (and their friends, family and co-workers).  Because Fairway offers the cards to the PTA at a small discount, each card we sell to you results in Fairway making a small donation to PS 40.  

  • The gift cards can be used at any Fairway location, so tell your friends and family! The locations closest to PS 40: Kips Bay - 30th Street/2nd Avenue -  and Chelsea - 25th Street/6th Avenue.
  • Cards are sold to you at face value (e.g. $100 to the PTA for a $100 gift card) but it includes Fairway's donation to the PTA.
  • The gift cards do not expire.
  • The gift cards retain their value and can be used for multiple transactions until they are depleted.
  • The gift cards are like cash; anyone can use them (and cannot be replaced if they are lost).
  • Purchases are not considered charitable donations to the PTA and are not tax deductible.
  • Gift cards will be available for pick-up at PS 40 (TBD, but will include mornings and afternoons)
  • Payments to the PS 40 PTA can be made in cash or by personal check at time of pickup.

If you are interested in purchasing any Fairway gift cards, please send an email Fran Shapiro at  PS40outreach@gmail.com:

- Your name and phone number and your child(ren)'s name(s) and class(es)

- How many $50 and/or $100 gift cards you would like
