Outstanding support from our parents makes West Portal one of the best elementary schools in San Francisco.
It’s unfortunate but undeniably true: the best public schools in the city are the ones that raise the most funds from their communities. If we want to continue to provide an exceptional education for our children, we must join together to support it. That is why each year we ask that you donate to the school as a part of the West Portal Parents Club Education Fund.
The Problem. The school district doesn’t provide enough funding for many essential programs.
The Solution. Each and every one of us! It’s only through your continued support and generosity that we can afford the programs that make our school special.
What Does the Parents Club Support? Here is a partial list of where your donations have gone in the past:
Did you know that the Parent Club has spent $78,500 over the last 2 years to put smart boards and projectors into every classroom and wire the entire school with WiFi? Just think of the educational benefits our kids will reap from that investment.
Our Goal. Last year we raised $105,253 through the Education Fund alone. This year we hope to raise $115,000. Would you please do what you can to help us to make our goal?
How Much Should I Give? We ask that every family give the most substantial gift that makes them comfortable. Some families give as little as $10. Others give as much as $10,000. Our standard request is $475 for families with one student or $725 for those with more than one. Together we can achieve our goals as a community when we all give as generously as we can.
All donors will be recognized equally on our annual donor’s list, regardless of donation size.

Step 1: Fill out this form.
Please print the form and fill it out in its entirety.
Step 2: Check to see if your company matches donations.
Did you know that many companies large and small will match your donation? West Portal gets TWICE as much money this way! So we strongly encourage you to check if you or your spouse works for such a company.
Some schools make up to $40,000 each year through company matching alone. Please help West Portal to become one of those schools. It's free money for us -- the best kind!
