DONATE TO THE GIVING CAMPAIGN!

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The GC hopes for 100% participation from all families so if you haven't yet donated this year, please do - no amount is too small. Checks can be made to BAM PTA and turned into the PTA safe in the BAM office, or donate online by clicking here.

The Giving Campaign is one of BAM PTA's main fundraising efforts, each year raising about half of the entire PTA budget. The campaign started in 2006 with10 parent volunteers and raised $28,000. In 2013 we raised almost $57,000 which represents almost half of the PTA budget, enabling the PTA to pay for critical programs that benefit all students at BAM including:

  • Weekly PE classes with the Berkeley YMCA
  • A lunch time supervisor in the cafeteria and YMCA staff organizing recreation programs during lunch
  • Visual and Performing Arts programs
  • Critical counseling services
  • Field trips, classroom supplies, and much, much more
