Dear Alumni and Friends of Eleanor Roosevelt High School,

Each of you, in some way, has played a part in establishing and promoting the standard of excellence associated with our school. As you know, this success has been in spite of limitations in funding and in our facilities. And
although it is the people who make our school great, our margin of excellence is limited by the fiscal constraints within which we operate. Having necessary and current materials of instruction enables us to raise the bar each year insuring that all students at Eleanor Roosevelt High School continue to succeed and excel.

In the current challenging financial climate, we turn to our most precious resource — you, our graduates — for help.

In honor of over 40 years of excellence we are issuing The $40 Challenge.

If everyone who receives this message makes a $40 donation to ERHS, we will be able to provide more than the bare minimum for our students. While larger donations are encouraged, we hope $40 is manageable for everyone.

Don't delay! Go to, register for a free account and donate with your debit, credit card, or electronic check at the school store on the site while you're thinking about it! Or you may send your check to the school. Your alma mater needs you in order to continue the high standards you helped establish. And please — send this to other friends of ERHS!

Make checks to ERHS, and mail to 7601 Hanover Parkway, Greenbelt, MD 20770, Attn: $40 Challenge. Write "Donation" in the memo line. You can even specify which department you would like to receive your donation.

Unspecified donations will go into a "Margin of Excellence" fund to be used where needed most (new computers, consumables, etc.) For donations of $5000 or more, contact Erika Brett at for special instructions. Put DONATION as the subject.

  • Donations of $400 (or more) — your name will be placed on a plaque in the Main Office.
  • Donations of $4000 —a classroom (of your choice?) will be named for you (pending BOE approval).
  • Donations of $40,000 —a hallway will be named for you (pending BOE approval).
  • Donations of $400,000 —the cafeteria, gym, football field or media center will be named in your honor (pending BOE approval).

All donations submitted with the donation page (below) will receive a receipt for tax purposes. Thank you in advance for your donation. With your help, Eleanor Roosevelt High School will continue to provide outstanding educational and extra-curricular opportunities to all students.
