Fundraising at Borel is admittedly confusing for a newcomer. The Borel programs fundraise independently and each benefits directly from your generosity. This page attempts to outline the fundraising schedule for your favorite programs so you can pace your giving throughout the year.
Bobcat Boosters and the PTA
Supporting the PTA supports your student’s experience at Borel. Bobcat Boosters is the PTA's main fundraiser and benefits all students. For 2017-2018 we hope to raise $225,000 to fund general classroom resources and materials for the Math, Science, Music, Art and Spanish departments, as well as staff supporting academic programs. The PTA also raises money with a magazine drive in the fall and an annual Tabletop Design Luncheon in the spring. These funds pay for great experiences like our annual Cultural Fair, Graduation, Reflections, speakers/presentations, and much more! Get details >>
Borel Corporate Boosters
Businesses can boost Borel academics too! The Corporate Boosters program expands our fundraising efforts to local businesses with the goal of generating the much needed funds to maintain a high-quality education for our children while connecting with the wider community. If you are a local business owner, we hope you consider joining the Borel Corporate Boosters. SIGN UP TODAY!
Borel is proud to field multiple teams in eight different sports including Basketball, Cross Country, Soccer, Golf, Tennis, Track & Field, Volleyball, and Flag Football. Borel Sports Awards & Cinema Night, held in June, is the main fundraising event for Borel Sports. Funds pay for coaches, referees, and basic athletic equipment.
Music is part of the academic program for hundreds of Borel students. Your donation to this program helps fund instruments, scholarships, travel opportunities, and the Winter and Spring concerts. Borel Music solicits sponsorships and donations in the fall.
We have the most admired Drama Department in the San Mateo-Foster City School District! More than 150 students take part in our wonderful Fall play and Spring musical, and both shows are 100% funded by family and community donations. Opportunities to support Borel Drama include a fundraiser night every other year in the Fall, as well as sponsorship and advertising for the spring musical.
We know that every family is different, and hope that you’ll donate in ways that best suit your budget.
