Annual Fund

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:

  • Teacher stipends (given to all Montera teachers to cover necessary classroom expenses)
  • Teacher and staff mini-grants for events and supplies
  • Computers and technology equipment 
  • Librarian and books
  • Campus grounds and sports field improvements
  • Sports — coordinator, team fees, and equipment
  • Music program (purchasing and repairing instruments)
  • Student scholarships to participate in fee-based programs
  • Organizational Planners for every student
  • Field trips
  • And more!

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 fundraising@monterapto.com.

Thank You!

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!
