Invest in Your Children — Invest in Montera
The Montera Parent-Teacher Organization funds school needs big and small not covered by the school budget — from essential things like books and classroom supplies to the extras that enrich students' lives, like field trips and music programs. We can't do it without you —your tax-deductible donation ensures that our kids keep on getting the things they need to thrive. Your donation helps sustain our success, including our recognition as a California Distinguished School.
The school budget does not cover many of Montera's vital needs. The PTO does — with your support. Here’s a sampling of the essential programs, activities and clubs the PTO funds or supports:
100% Participation Goal
We recognize that every family has different resources. We welcome your 100% tax-deductible contribution at absolutely any level - every dollar counts. If you can't donate money, please consider volunteering your time to help with a fundraiser like the school benefit, or participating in a no-cost-to-you fundraising program like SHARES.
Matching Donations are Free Money
Please check with your employer to see if they will provide a 100% tax-deductible corporate match! If you need a receipt or assistance with forms for corporate matching, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your tremendous support. Our community has excelled because of people who take action to ensure our children have a great experience in Oakland public schools!
