Where does my PFA Ed Fund Donation go?

What is the Foothill PFA Education Fund?

The Foothill PFA raises money to bridge the gap between public funding and the true cost of a Foothill Middle School education. We are asking for donations from EVERY family in ANY AMOUNT towards the Foothill PFA Education Fund. Although the school year is starting with distance learning, your donations are still necessary to provide critical additional funding that allows Foothill to deliver a truly outstanding education to all our students. This year, the majority of this funding will go toward the following:

Counselor
  • Develop online communications standards to implement with students.
  • Social and emotional resource for both parents and students.
  • This position was recently eliminated due to MDUSD budget cuts. The PFA has made it a priority to ensure that this position be funded so that this crucial resource will continue our students.
Technology Coach
  • Webmaster – distance learning page.
  • Supporting devices.
  • Supporting distance learning for both teachers and students.

Library Instruction Assistant

  • Creating online book reservation system and providing safe pick-up options for students.
  • Coordinating after school book club options for students.
Reimbursement to teachers for approved classroom supply purchases, i.e. headsets, tech equipment.
 

The suggested donation to the EdFund is $425 per student. Donating to this fund is not a requirement for registering your student at Foothill, but your donation of any size really makes a difference!! When you click to donate, you will also have the option to donate in monthly installments. Please consider helping bridge the gap for our students! 

To donate online, you must be registered with Konstella. Once registered, you may donate online via the PFA Education Fund Donation Page

If you prefer to pay with check, you may mail your donation to the school: Foothill Middle School, Attn: Foothill PFA, 2775 Cedro Lane, Walnut Creek, CA 94598.

Corporate Match: many employers will match your PFA EdFund donation. Please check with your employer’s charitable giving department to see if your donation can be matched. Many organizations have calendar year deadlines.

Will my company match my donation?

Usually yes!! Because Foothill PFA is a registered non-profit organization under the 501(c)3 tax code, your donations to the Ed Fund are usually eligible for corporate matching.  

It is usually a very quick process to request a matching request as most employers offer corporate matching via online portals on your corporate intranet. Typically all you will need is the following information: 

·         Our name: Foothill Parent Faculty Association

·         Our address:  2775 Cedro Lane, Walnut Creek, CA 94598 

·         Our tax ID number: #68-0015686

·         The date and amount of your gift 

Please consider asking about whether your employer will match your donation and double your impact!
