How You Can Help
- Set up a recurring monthly donation. Reach CAF’s suggested donation of $1,200 per student with a monthly payment of $100.
- Make a one time gift now. CAF suggests $1,200 or more per student but donations of any amount help us reach our goal. OR…
3. Make a pledge now. If you prefer to make a donation at another time of year, please make a commitment now and we can remind you later.
Take Action Now to Help Us Plan More Effectively!
We know this is a challenging time and you’re concerned about what school will look like in the coming year. We want to help you simplify. CAF is helping to de-clutter your inbox by focusing on a single fall campaign. So let’s work together: Give or pledge now and you’ll be set. The Fall Call to Action campaign kicks off on August 17th!
CAF will continue to keep you informed with relevant information and opportunities to support students throughout the year.
Why Focus on the Fall Campaign?
Planning for the next school year starts well before the current school year is complete. The sooner we know how much we can give to Carlmont, the more effectively your contributions can be used. If we can firm up donations and commitments early in the school year, we can put those donations to the best use possible.
The coming year may look quite different for our students, teachers, and staff. By confirming our budget early in the year, we hope to fund the high priorities that will best support students working through the changing campus environment.
If you pledge today or prefer to pledge or donate later in the year, these are great future opportunities to make your gift:
- Giving Tuesday (December 1, 2020)
- Stand Up for Public Schools Day (May 2021)
If you’re not ready to donate or pledge right now, we welcome your gift at any time. We will check back later in the school year.
Why Support CAF?
CAF raises funds solely to support classes, programs, and staff that benefit every Carlmont student. Some of the key areas funded by CAF include: 17 added class sections resulting in more class choices and smaller class sizes, college and career counseling, an additional counselor, academic support for students, college testing and prep, and teacher mini-grants (with PTSA). For this 2020-21 school year, CAF is planning for flexibility to ensure funds are used where most needed to support students in these challenging times.
