Annual Giving Campaign

Suggested Donation Levels – 2013-2014
Ask = $1,500 per child
Scholar’s Circle = $3,500
Scholar’s Circle Premier = $5,000
Scholar’s Circle Platinum = $10,000

This year we are asking families to donate $1500 per student, which is the amount we need to fund vital programs. We know not everyone can donate that much, so please consider donating what you can. If everyone gives what they can, every child benefits.  If you would like to get involved and volunteer, learn more… Thank you for supporting School-Force!

Monthly Recurring Donations

For many, giving monthly instead of in a lump sum is a more manageable way to make a donation to School-Force. School-Force needs your donation for next school year by June 30th. A donation of $1,500 per child by June 30th means just over $4 per day, or $125 per month per child to support quality education. See the recurring donation ‘calculator’ chart to help calculate your monthly donation.

Donations By Mail

To make your donation by check, make your check payable to “School-Force” and mail to the address listed below or drop off at any school office in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District.
