Annual Fund

The Chabot PTA exists to support the school, and to fill the gap between what OUSD gives Chabot, and what it takes to run our amazing school. This year, filling this gap feels even more critical, because it will fund small group specialists, psychologists, enrichment programs, and teacher funds. In addition, we anticipate additional needs related to health, safety, and technology, where the PTA will play a leading role. But because these programs are not funded by public dollars, the PTA must fundraise. Read more about the OUSD funding formula and PTA financial resources.

Why Donate?

  • This year, the PTA will continue to support vital enrichment programs, academic excellence, and school site support with a budget of over $550,000.
  • Your contributions help provide an educational experience that applies to the whole child and makes these programs (whether delivered live or in person) possible including:
    • technology & media
    • small group specialists who support teachers and boost impact
    • special academic programming that ensures all kids reach their full potentials
    • psychologist support
    • teacher supplies
    • art
    • science
    • music
    • library
  • This year, the Chabot PTA is committed to taking an active stance against the clear inequities that exist in our Oakland Community. To this end, we will be supporting organizations that are working to advance equity and justice within Oakland schools. Further, we will be allocating additional funds to our Equity & Inclusion Committee who will continue to think about those in the Chabot community who could use additional support (emotional, financial, and otherwise) during this period.
The suggested donation is $950 per child, but participation at any level is greatly appreciated.
Our goal is for 100% of Chabot families to donate to this year’s Annual Fund, whether that’s $5 or $5,000.
