    The Fund Campaign of Foothill School

    Please join us in supporting The FUND. Providing the FUNDamentals of education.
    We are asking each family to donate $250 or a dollar amount that is significant and meaningful to their family.

    Years ago, when many of us attended elementary school, programs like science, P.E., art, library, computer and music were an important and expected part or our daily education. Sadly, this is no longer the case in California schools. It is up to each school community to fundraise the money to provide these resources. Without the contributions from each family, these programs will discontinue before the end of the school year.

    The goal for The FUND for 2014/2015 is $50,000.  Suggested contributions are $250 per family.  We encourage every family to give what is significant for their budget, such as $100, $75 or $50.  In the past, some families have given multiple post-dated checks; for example, 9 checks for $28 each. We also have families that will give $500* and $1,000* and that is great too.

    Last year, approximately 35% of our school’s families participated in the Dream Campaign.  Yet 100% of the children benefited from these services.

    While our financial goal is $50,000, our greater goal is 100% participation. We understand that each family’s financial resources are different, which is why we are ultimately asking simply for your participation. We need each family’s help.

    Your participation shows….

    You believe in providing a computer lab to teach our children the necessary computer literacy and keyboarding skills to compete in the 21st century.

    It says you believe in our school library where children are greeted by Mrs. Pickford’s smiling face as she draws them into a world of literature.

    You believe in the importance of our children having fun while exercising with Ms. Wade, our PE specialist, and participating in the Turkey Trot and the Folk Dance Festival.

    Donations to The FUND are tax deductible.
