"Get in the Game" Capital Campaign:
Please join us in supporting the 

Rumson PTO Gym Renovation

Help us transform our Rumson School gymnasiums into state-of-the-art athletics facilities! Plans include: resurfacing Forrestdale’s gym floor and replacing Deane-Porter’s floor, revitalizing the walls, and adding updated accessories. These capital improvements will bring both venues up-to-date for years to come. We are asking your help in raising $100,000 to make this happen! All donation amounts are welcome and much appreciated. Donate to the Rumson PTO Gym Renovation on Go Fund Me.
