Did you know that the high-caliber education our children receive at Alamo is significantly supported by the generous contributions our families make to our school each year?

Your financial support, hours of volunteering, and leadership help enable Alamo students to become creative thinkers, problem solvers, and future leaders.

The PTA and Friends of Alamo School Foundation fund a wide range of programs that make Alamo a highly sought-after public school. We are all incredibly fortunate for the diversity of experiences our children can participate in during their years at Alamo.

A wide range of programs would not be possible without funding from our PTA and Friends of Alamo School Foundation, including:

  • STEM programs including our outdoor education program
  • Music programs
  • Classroom technology
  • Literacy programs & library supplies
  • Our school garden
  • After School Enrichment Programming
  • Overnight outdoor education experiences
  • Ceramics & Dance
  • “Second Step” for emotional development
  • Field trips for students, including grade-wide trips to Sacramento, Audubon Canyon, Alcatraz & Angel Island

Despite the passage of recent revenue measures, California has continued to underfund public schools like Alamo. That is why we need your help! Maintaining and expanding these programs at our school amounts to nearly $500 per student each school year. To make this happen, our Invest in Alamo fundraising goal this year is to raise more than $60,000.

Every dollar we raise adds to the opportunities we can provide to our children, and any donation amount is welcome and appreciated.

Thank you for your feedback and financial support!
