Why Giving Matters

Excellent schools are a top priority in San Bruno

We want all our children to have the opportunities to learn and achieve every year, no matter what happens with the state budget. As school districts throughout the state are painfully aware, per-student spending in California is well below the amount necessary to ensure a high-quality, well-rounded education for our students.

Funding shortage

California ranks 42nd in regionally adjusted spending per student. In a high cost-of-living area, this simply doesn't provide enough money to pay teachers, maintain our facilities, and provide a full and enriching array of programs for students.

Community values

How do communities make sure their schools have the resources they need when state funding is so limited? Throughout California, the answer is clear: Only through local action can we ensure that our children receive a high-quality education.
