Why are we raising money?
To achieve our mission, Ockley Green Supporters relies on volunteers, fundraising campaigns, and both in-kind and direct donations. Throughout the year, opportunities will arise to contribute to specific causes, but we also rely heavily on our general fund to finance much of what we do, including:
Providing a flexible source of funding to supplement the cost of classroom learning materials, direct services to students, and services that are not available through school administration or the district
Providing gifts on days of national recognition, meals on days were staff are at school from morning through evening, and general staff room support
Contributing to the funding of school dances and other student led (and staff supported) initiatives
Assisting with funding school events and field trips, in coordination with school administration

Staff Wish List
OG Supporters uses community raised funds to provide mini-grants to staff and to purchase items directly for the school, but from time to time needs arise that fall outside what our organization has budgeted for. When that happens, staff are invited to submit items to a shared wishlist. We hope that members of the community will consider helping staff fulfill their wish list items, in support of OGMS students.
