Giving to Oakland Tech
PTSA Annual Fund
When you donate to the PTSA Annual Fund, you directly support athletics, the arts, school-wide events, college and career programs –– and much more –– that make Tech such an inspiring community for our 1,800+ students to grow and thrive.
We greatly appreciate donations of any amount at any time of year. Automatic monthly donations, in particular, are a crucial component of the Annual Fund, and provide a steady source of funds that our school and students depend on. All donations are tax-deductible (ID #94-6174624). A PayPal account is not required.
You may be able to double, or even triple, your donation to the PTSA. Contact your Human Resources Dept. to find out if your company will match your gift. Or check out this long list of Bay Area companies that have matching donation programs.
