Your annual tax deductible donation is vital to keep all the programs that are currently offered at Short Avenue. PlanetBravo Technology Classes, Spanish Language Classes, Field Trip Buses, Ballroom Dancing for the 5th graders, and a Teacher's Aide are some of the things Friends of Short Avenue (FoSA) funds. Our goal is 100% participation in our Annual Giving campaign!
We are suggesting a donation of $500, plus $250 for each additional child. As an example, a family with two students would donate $750.
If you choose to do a monthly recurring donation over the course of the school year, that breaks down to $50 per month for 10 months, or $75 per month for two students.
Please understand, that like all public schools, we do not receive enough money from LAUSD for all the programs that you have come to expect a school to have. But with everyone's help, FoSA pays for all the extras. We are a 61% Title One school, so we realize that some families may not be able to donate the suggested amount. Please give what feels comfortable for your family. The money donated to FoSA goes right back to our children. Short Avenue Elementary is an amazing school, and every donation helps our children get the best educational experience possible.
