Thornhill Annual Fund!!
Tue, Nov 17 6:56pm


Hello Thunderbirds,

Happy October! It’s time to kick off the Thornhill Annual Fund (previously known as the Back to School Donation Drive). We recognize that this is a tough time to get a donation request, as parents, teachers, and kids are stretched in ways we couldn’t have imagined a year ago. We’re all facing new challenges and doing our best every day, but one thing that hasn’t changed is that we are part of a strong school community, and it is the role of the Parent Faculty Club (PFC) to find ways to make it even stronger. The Thornhill Annual Fund is a tangible way that you can help provide an exceptional experience for all our students (even when that experience is happening right at your kitchen table!).

We know the needs will change throughout the year, but here is what we’re funding so far (click on the below links to learn more about our staff!):

In a typical year, the Thornhill PFC fundraises and spends $1000 per student to make these resources a reality for our children. We are thankful for your donation of ANY AMOUNT. Our goal for the Annual Fund is for every family to participate at the level they are able.

Will your company match your donation? Amazing! Please submit that form!!

You prefer to pay in installments? We have options for that and are happy to get as creative as you need.

Here’s how to donate:

  1. By Check – You will be receiving a yellow envelope in the mail. Please fill out the form, make your check out to “Thornhill PFC”, and mail them to Thornhill Annual Fund - 6265 Virgo Road, Oakland, CA 94611. We’ve mailed you an envelope to make it easy!  Donations made by check help us avoid PayPal fees.

  2. PayPal – If you prefer donating online, that’s perfect! Please click here to fill out the donation form. You’ll be redirected to PayPal to complete your donation.    

Families that donate (or set up their installment plan) in the month of October will receive a Thornhill baseball tee for each of their students. Yet another reason to fill out the donation form….we need your shirt size!

Thank you for supporting the Thornhill school community and enriching our students’ experience!
