One Gift.  One Goal.  Together We Can.

For the 2019-2020 school year, we’re launching the One Community Campaign (OCC), combining the annual Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation (MPAEF) fall fundraising into one ask and simplifying your donation process.  Our goal is 100% participation so please donate at whatever level is possible for you. The suggested donation is $2,000 per student - the first $250 goes to your child’s PTO and the remainder to the MPAEF.
