Save the date - March 21, 2015 for Auction Night 2015 at St. Francis Episcopal, 399 San Fernando Way.


West Portal Elementary School is recognized as one of only a handful of California Distinguished Elementary Schools. The core of its success comes from our talented staff, eager children, committed parents, and of course supportive community.

As you may know, public school funding has been cut to the bare bones. The San Francisco Unified School District does NOT provide funds for a full-time Music and Art Instructor, a full-time Librarian, an Outdoor Science/ Garden Instructor, a Student Support Consultant, classroom technology and PE equipment. The West Portal Parents Club funds these essential programs.

We are asking, on behalf of the 592 K-5 children who attend West Portal Elementary, to support our biggest fundraiser of the year which is our annual Spring Auction.

The event will begin with an online auction from March 9-17, 2015, and culminate in a live auction event on March 21, 2015. In order to avoid cutting the programs mentioned above, we must raise $70,000 at this year's event. This is an enormous challenge.

Here's how you can help:

  • Donate merchandise, services, or gift certificates to place into auction
  • Sponsor our auction with a monetary donation

In return for your generosity, your business will be featured in our auction website run by Bidding for Good that will be seen by our school community and their community of over 300,000 people.

Here is a donor form. Alternatively, you can donate directly through our Auction website at For more information, please contact us at
