Join us! Fundraising at Graham supports many student activities such as dances, after-school sports and awards. Funds raised allow the music department to buy new instruments and pay for tour expenses. General school supplies, like agendas, photocopying, resource books and classroom expenses are paid for.
There are many ways you can help Graham raise the necessary funds to keep valuable programs and resources available to the students. The PTA accepts direct donations. EScrip programs cost you nothing but raise funds every time you shop at participating locations. School events are a great way to build the community, see old friends and make new ones while helping Graham. And a percentage of all event sales goes to support Graham programs.
Donate to Annual Fund
These days, schools are asked to do more with less and our help is needed to fill those gaps. Your tax-deductible donations to our Graham Annual Fund and Graham Performing Arts (if applicable) will go toward a multitude of necessities that impact your child directly. Just a few examples that enrich your child's life at Graham include funding events like spirit week, social dances, performing arts shows, 8th grade graduation, spirit week, and many more school-wide activities, like last week’s amazing welcome week activities.
Donations are tax deductible: GRAHAM MIDDLE SCHOOL TAX ID 77-0348089.
Corporate Matching Program
Many companies match their employees' contributions to nonprofit organizations (US based 501(c)(3)). This could instantly double the money you donate to the organization. Please see the Corporate Matching FAQ for more details.
By supporting the The Mountain View Educational Foundation , you support every student in the K-8 public school district (MVWSD). The Mountain View Educational Foundation is a volunteer-driven non-profit that works in collaboration with the community to bring essential programs to all eleven Mountain View Whisman School District (MVWSD) schools. Public funding is not enough! They raise and distribute critical funds that the government does not provide, ensuring that all our students get a competitive, well-rounded education for every student in the district! (Let's hear it for equality in our community!)
For the 2019-20 school year, MVEF's goal was to raise $800,000 to fund these core programs:
Art and music lessons provided by Community School of Music and Arts instructors
Hands-on science and environmental field trips
Middle school science lab materials and elementary school science kits
Garden-based lessons taught by Living Classroom
Middle school after-school athletics
Instrument repair and purchase
Professional development for MVWSD educators
