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.
CAF has several 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.

Fall Call Campaign Report
Thank you!! CAF is ahead of where we were last year at this time, but we still have a way to go to ensure a successful year for all Carlmont students…
Thank you to those of you who answered CAF’s Fall Call to Action! We raised $225,000 during the campaign, which includes $55K worth of pledges! That amount, plus $110K from the start of our fiscal year puts us at almost $340,000 raised, primarily from individual donors like you.
Obviously, we’re not quite where we need to be to meet our goal of $900K and ensure a successful year for all Carlmont students. But we have a plan for how to get to our goal, which includes employer matching funds, engaging businesses, and a strong Giving Tuesday (take a look at our progress bars in various categories, below).
One thing you can be sure of, CAF will be here continuing to work hard for Carlmont students.
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.
CAF will continue to keep you informed with relevant information and opportunities to support students throughout the year.
