GIVING TUESDAY IS NOVEMBER 29, 2022
Giving Tuesday is a global movement that reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity with a mission to build a world where generosity is part of everyday life.
On this day of giving, we kindly ask that you consider donating to the Walnut Acres PFC Jaguar Fund. Your gift will strengthen the Walnut Acres community and support programs that improve student outcomes.
Why We Need Your Support: Along with our fantastic teachers and staff, a major reason behind the high caliber of a Walnut Acres education is the funding that we, the parents, provide to the Walnut Acres PFC. Walnut Acres, along with other public schools in California, continue to face budget challenges that affect staffing and district-funded programs. As a parent group, the Walnut Acres PFC has voted to support the teachers and the school programs that we know immensely enrich our children’s educational experience. Reducing the adverse impact of the current budget crisis continues to be our top financial priority.
Making A Difference: We all know how dedicated teachers are, and how much they sacrifice for their students. A recent survey found teachers spend an average of $750 out of pocket on classroom supplies during a school year. Teachers making sacrifices for their students isn't new, but their out-of-pocket spending is increasing. Data shows that between 2015 and 2021, spending increased by 25%. Your donation can provide the teachers and students with a secure environment that spurs robust learning. When they have all the funds they need, teachers can spend more time doing what they do best, teaching!
Our fundraising goal this year is $175,000 and we have $65,000 left to go. Please help us reach our goal! The suggested donation is $65 per month or a one-time donation of $650, per child. However, no amount is too small and every donation has a positive impact on our children's education!

Thank you for your generosity! Together we shine!
