Current Fundraiser: New Kiln at PTMS
The Pittsgrove Arts and Education Foundation, a non-profit organization, has launched a fundraiser to raise money for a new and improved kiln at the Pittsgrove Township Middle School (PTMS).  The old kiln is no longer operational and must be replaced.  The kiln is used to make ceramic art, which is a vital part of the PTMS art curriculum.  

The Pittsgrove Township School District will fund the replacement cost of the current kiln.  Our goal, however, is to purchase an upgraded model that has a larger capacity and greater efficiency rating.  The Pittsgrove Arts and Education Foundation’s goal is to raise $1,500 which will support the upgrade costs for this latest model.
