PTA Fundraising


Central PTA supports every student at our school. In partnership with our school district and our education foundation, SchoolForce, we help to make sure that our kids receive an incredible education. Our annual PTA budget covers field trips, classroom supplies, teacher training, and more. We have partnered with SchoolForce and to make a one-time fundraising request during the Educational Commitment Campaign, or ECC. The first $275 of your donation to the ECC made between July 15, 2023, and October 31, 2023 will come directly to our Central PTA to fund all of these vital community activities and support our teachers and students. We hope that you will consider making a donation in any amount to help us budget for and provide many important opportunities for students here at Central. You can learn more about the ECC and our partnership with SchoolForce here.

Examples of PTA Programs made possible by ECC donations at Central include: 

- Teacher training & supplies

- Specialized and credentialed teachers like Ms. Kim who teaches Social Emotional learning

Unfortunately California state funding does not provide sufficient resources to deliver the quality of education Central has historically provided.  PTA members support each of these programs and more, through their donations and through their many volunteer efforts in a variety of areas – in the classroom, as technology gurus, through running special events, and by organizing PTAs many special programs and services. We hope you will join us in building our community and enhancing all of our children’s educational experience by donating during this year's ECC Campaign. Click here to donate.
