Annual Fund Drive 2021-22

Strengthen the pride!

The Friends of King (FOK) Annual Fund Drive is Thomas Starr King's most important fundraiser. FOK's mission is to raise funds to support increased educational opportunities and resources for all King students. 


But we can’t do that without you.   

 

Why do we need to raise money?

Friends of King provides funding and scholarships for King enrichment programs that all of our children enjoy. These include:


Field trips     
PE equipment   
Beautification 
Art
Technology 
 TV broadcast
Filmmaking 
Robotics
Edible garden
 Sports
Sustainability 
 Music



FUN FACT: LAUSD only provides King’s campus, teachers and administrators.                    



How much do we need to raise?

The goal for the Annual Fund Drive is $100,000. That may sound ambitious, but it's necessary. This year, due to Covid-19 precautions, we anticipate higher prices for events and higher need for financial aid. We have some exciting events planned for the kids- they deserve an awesome year to make up for last year! But the events must be accessible to ALL kids. That means full or partial scholarships for some students. FOK bridges the financial gap and makes events possible for all. 

 


How much should I give?

$100,000 divided by 2,000 students = $50/student. If every family was able to give $50 we'd be set, but the reality is, for 71% of our kids,  $50 is more than their family can afford. To support full equity at King- the rule is, all the kids go, or no one goes. Truly, we are all in this together! We are asking all who can afford to, to donate a minimum of $175. If you have the means to give more, we encourage you to give as much as you possibly can. Every extra $50 gets one more kid on board and will help ensure a stellar year for ALL King students. 


FUN FACT: Monthly donation of $5/month= $50! (set it up below)


NOT-FUN FACT: 1405 students out of 1976 total students (71%) qualify for free or reduced lunch (Title 1). That leaves 571 families with the financial means to donate.   $100,000/571= $175   How many kids can you cover?



The goal for this year is 100% participation.

Please donate $175 (more if you can), but if you can't do the full $175, please donate any amount so we can reach 100% participation. Once every family donates, we become eligible for grant funding that can really launch us to a new level. Use this page to set up one-time and monthly donations. Also look for the AFD donation envelope in your child's backpack. Fill out the envelope and return it with your child so they can participate in some fun new participation events.



Thank you!
