organization charged with raising much needed funds to pay for programs that have been cut by public sources. Donations are

FOO has an all-volunteer Board of Directors that plans and manages the annual fundraising at our school.
These efforts, however, are only as successful as the support from our entire parent community. Our school relies heavily
on generous donations from parents, local businesses, corporations and foundations. The funds raised by FOO go directly to
support enrichment of classroom instruction and activities that help make Overland such a unique public school including:
Art, Drama and Music programs
Computer Lab staff and materials
Library staff and resources
Field trips and classroom supplies
size reduction teachers
Landscaping and building
Teachers’ Aides at all grade levels
During the past few years, class sizes have increased and a number of the programs previously funded by the
Los Angeles Unified School District have been cut, requiring FOO to raise more funds than ever before. Our
budget over the past three years has increased by over 50%. In order to maintain the existing FOO-funded
programs and staffing at the same levels, we have to work harder and tap into new funding sources.
FOO has three primary fundraising
