School Support Fee

Every donation goes directly to programming and is tax deductible.

The School Support Fee (SSF) is our biggest and most important way to raise money.  This year we need to raise $165,000 or more to fill the gap created by LAUSD budget cuts. We are asking that each family donates $500 per child, but no gift is too large or too small.  Please consider giving more if you are able, but please give what you can. Our goal is 100% participation. We are asking that your payment is made by October 10, 2017, to ensure that there is no interruption to these programs mid-year.

Rosewood Avenue Elementary, School for Advanced Studies offers an outstanding educational program.  Friends of Rosewood [FoR], the parent group that raises funds for Rosewood to offset the costs that LAUSD does not cover, is currently facing a significant budget deficit.  Programs such as the librarian, arts enrichment, and supplemental hours for teachers’ aides are in jeopardy if we cannot reach our goal.

-    Funding the salary of a designated Librarian (Library Aid)

-    Funding for classroom supplies for teachers

-    Supplementing the cost of Field Trips

-    Support of the Morning Mile

-    Support of the Green Team & Garden Science Program

-    Funding and support for community building events (Fall Festival, Movie Nights, Etc.)

We encourage and welcome all families to attend our monthly meetings to participate in discussions and decision-making. Dates and times will be posted at school and on the FoR website.

FoR is a 501 (c)3 non-profit. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Our tax I.D. # is 91-208142.  Please consider making your donation today. And don’t forget to ask your company or HR department if your company matches donations.

We are looking forward to another exciting year at Rosewood and thank you so much in advance for your support.
