FRIENDS OF MICHELTORENA — FUNDRAISING
Micheltorena relies on donations for Teacher Assistants, P.E., field trips, art, green spaces, and much more!
Make a one-time or monthly recurring donation now through PayPal. If you have questions about how much to donate or why, please scroll down.
OUR 2018 FUNDRAISING GOAL IS $225,000!
We can do it with 100% participation from families. No donation is too small. Whether you give $1 or $5,000, your donation makes a big difference. Every dollar counts!
USE THIS SLIDING SCALE TO DONATE
We understand that there is a huge range in incomes at our school. 56% of our school is Title One, which means these families qualify for free or reduced lunches. So we’re asking our families at the other end of the economic spectrum to donate more, if possible. We created a sliding scale, to help you figure out what to donate.
If you earn…
Less than $50k/year, donate $120 — or $10/month
$50 – 100k/year, donate $350 — or $30/month
$100 – 150k/year, donate $900 — or $75/month
$150 – 200k/year, donate $1500 — or $125/month
More than $200k/year, donate $3000 — or $250/month
As always, we ask our Kinder families to donate the equivalent of one month’s preschool tuition. But please consider all of the above amounts suggestions. Donate what you can. Every single dollar is appreciated.
