The Emerson Enrichment Fund Month of Giving Campaign Needs Community Support!

We are asking for contributions to fund key programs not supported by the Oakland Unified School District budget. Donating to the Emerson Month of Giving campaign is an easy way to offer support and uplift your community!

State and local education funding does not cover many of Emerson's vital needs. The PTA does - with your support!  Together we can help ensure that our students have equitable access to valuable activities, supplies and programs to help them reach their full potential.

When we all pitch in we can support the students of Emerson to become stronger scholars, stewards of our planet, and compassionate, engaged members of the community!

"Dear Family, Friends, Neighbors...

Because it is still a challenge for Emerson Elementary to host in person activities, many of our annual fundraisers are yet to be settled this year. This month of giving is an opportunity to collect funds up front to secure the programs & activities that enrich the education of all students at Emerson!

The month of September is the ONLY time our Fundraising Committee asks directly for money. Making a donation to Emerson is an easy and helpful way to support our kids and uplift the community!
