  • Fundraising Team

    We put the FUN in fundraising!

     

    Who says fundraising is a chore? Our team is dedicated to raising the money the PTSA needs to support vital programs and strengthen our school community. We take it seriously but have a great time doing it — and we could always use a little help.


    From outreach to local businesses, to grant writing or other more traditional fundraising work, to helping out at events or simply sending a few emails, PTSA VP of Development Shelly Cox can give you a job, large or small. Email her at vpdevelopment@oaklandtech.com. The spring auction fundraiser is coming up, and there are lots of ways to help with that too. Get in touch with Leslie Ayers at auction@oaklandtech.com.
