Support the Josiah Quincy Elementary School!
The Josiah Quincy Elementary School (JQES), is the largest and one of the oldest elementary schools in the Boston Public School system and this year we are celebrating its 171st anniversary!
Located in Boston’s Chinatown, the school has a strong legacy of academic rigor and instilling respect, perseverance and self discipline among its students, all of whom reflect the diversity of Boston itself. JQES is a school that has the community at its heart and is dedicated to preparing students to be global citizens - 78% of whom come from families at or below poverty level.

Today, we would like to ask for your support in helping us keep vital programs and resources running for our students - swim instruction, technology lab improvements, and educational field trips.
These activities foster self-reliance, intellectual and emotional growth, social adjustment, physical well-being, and encourage a healthy lifestyle; however, as a public school, we do not have the financial resources ourselves to provide these enriching programs to our students. Watch this video to find out more about who we are and why we need your support.
We rely on the crucial fundraising support of our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Josiah Quincy School Association (JQSA), to keep these vital programs functioning, and this year is no exception.
Our fundraising goal for this year is $100,000.
Last year's fundraiser enabled us to fund our Aquatic Instruction Program for 440 students, purchase 25 Chromebook computers, a Chromebook cart, headphones and mouses for all of the technology lab’s computers. We are also able to fund experiences for our K1 through 1st grade classes including a visit from the Mass Audubon Bluehills Trailside Museum’s owl specialists, allowing our kindergartners to extend their learning experience of their Animals and Habitats unit by seeing an owl up close in their classroom!
Thank you for your support and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
