Odyssey Charter Schools thrive because of the generosity of families and friends who believe in our mission and are committed to our future. Every year we rely on this continued support to help us sustain the quality and depth of the education provided at our schools. Your support helps to ensure that we are able to offer not only the core academic curriculum, but also maintain many of our creative and inspired enrichment programs.
Our school is supported through our Annual Campaign, Fundraisers, and Supporters like our parents and local community members. We appreciate every gift, no matter the size!
WHY SHOULD I GIVE?
As a public charter school, only a portion of our financial obligations are fulfilled by state funds, where our state funding is 30% below the national average. We depend on donations from parents to fill significant budget gaps that our state funding does not cover.
Your Annual Campaign donation directly supports the below educational experiences for our students:
● Arts Education
● Field Trips
● Gardening Program
● Middle School Electives
● Physical Education
● Teacher Assistants in TK-8 classrooms
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Secure online payments can be made online here. Donations are also accepted in the form of cash, checks, credit cards, or set up as an auto-payment from your bank.
ARE MY CONTRIBUTIONS TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
Odyssey Charter Schools is at 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Gifts to the Annual Campaign are 100% tax deductible!
Our Parent Participation Groups host a number of fundraisers throughout the year. Fundraisers are an opportunity to invite family and friends to participate in community events and give to our school. The funds raised through these various events directly support our student’s educational experiences.
Our community is extremely grateful to our benefactors who have enabled us to enhance our students’ learning experience.
