Peralta Fund Drive 2018

Thank you for joining over 80% of Peralta families in contributing to the Peralta Fund. 

Your donation to the Peralta Fund helps pay for:

  • Music

  • Art

  • Sports

  • Kindergarten classroom mentors/helpers

  • Field trips

  • Garden education

  • Computer supplies and support

  • Earthquake and disaster preparedness

Many families prefer to donate online, via automatic monthly payments. Donate online or bring your pledge form and check to the main office at Peralta. Donations to the Peralta Fund are tax-deductible. 

How much should you contribute?

Unfortunately, money from OUSD does not cover the expenses of a comprehensive education like the one your child receives at Peralta. Donations to the Peralta Fund help fill that gap. 

Many families ask how much they should consider donating to the Peralta Fund. Donations range from $3,600 ($300 a month) to $5 per child.  Give what you can. All donations help our kids get the education they deserve.

Kindergarten families: Please consider donating at least JUST ONE MORE MONTH of what you paid for preschool or childcare before Peralta. You can spread that amount out over the whole year with automatic, monthly payments.

Does your Employer Offer Corporate Matching?

By using your company's charitable matching program, you can double (or more) your contribution to the school. This is a great way to significantly increase the impact of your contribution. (You can also encourage any friends or relatives interested in supporting Peralta to see if their companies will match their contribution.)
