Support Sequoia

Support Sequoia

Support Sequoia is an annual giving campaign, responsible for about a third of our overall fundraising! Nothing is bought or sold; families are simply asked to make a tax-deductible donation that goes directly to our enrichment programs. This is our largest fundraiser of the year. With school-wide participation, we can continue to offer these amazing programs — programs that not only give our students a well-rounded education, but also support Sequoia’s core academic instruction by giving our teachers time with smaller class groups, tailored to students’ individual needs. The 2018-2019 campaign runs August 29 – September 27, 2018.

One-Time Donation



We have many fundraisers at Sequoia but the easiest and most fruitful is Support Sequoia. There is nothing for you to buy, sell or do except donate what you can. Just watch for the Support Sequoia packet at the Welcome Back Night on August 29th. If you can’t make it, your student(s) will bring home the packet this week. Please sign and return the form and give if you can.

As costs rise in the bay area, it is crucial that all of our teachers can afford to continue to be a part of the Sequoia community. We can directly aid our enrichment teachers’ salaries through our donations to each of the school fundraisers. This year our fundraising goal has increased in order to provide better funds for these teachers and classes.

The programs that your donations go towards cost around $400 per student, so it is important to participate. Please help keep these classes going by donating what you can. Every donation, large or small, makes a difference as we work to raise $80,000 over the next four weeks.

Our goal is 100% participation. Every student who returns the Support Sequoia form, with or without a donation, receives this year’s new GLOW in the DARK Sequoia wristband. Additionally, if the class participation is at 100%, the class will get an extra recess. If the WHOLE school is at 100%, Mr. Bertolo will do something wacky (feel free to suggest your crazy ideas to Mr. B . . . (remember those water balloons last year?!?))

You can make a one-time donation on our donate page, or you can spread your donation over the year by signing up for twelve automatic monthly payments. If you can, please consider increasing your donation to cover enrichment for another child in the Sequoia community.
