Jaguar Fund


What is the Jaguar Fund?

The Jaguar Fund is the Parent Faculty Club’s primary source of funds to bridge the gap between public funding and the true cost of our children’s education at Walnut Acres. Our fundraising goal for Jaguar Fund is $180,000, which is 71% of our income goal for this year. 

The suggested donation for the 2020-2021 school year is $650 per child. 
Donations can be made via Konstella here: DONATE NOW

Why give to the Jaguar Fund during distance learning? 

The PFC Executive Board has reduced the operating budget for this school year to $275,683. 
Of that, $230,108 will be invested in staffing.  See the complete approved PFC Budget hereWe focused on the positions and programs that will have the greatest impact on our children's education whether as distance or in-person learning.  These include math and reading intervention specialists, science lab instructors, and our STEM Instructor and Site Tech, who will support our classroom teachers to make the most of distance learning. 

Your donation to the Jaguar Fund will make a difference for your students education during this time. 

Why should I contribute?

  • Walnut Acres has a legacy of generosity. We are a community that cares a lot about the quality of education that our children receive. Your contribution to the Jaguar Fund is an investment in your child’s education.
  • $650 per student certainly sounds like a lot of money, but consider that it is only $65 per month for the 10 months school is in session. And, you can set up 10 monthly, recurring payments to your credit card. 
  • Every child benefits from PFC-funded programs, so every family should contribute what they can to the Jaguar Fund.
  • Your contribution to the Jaguar Fund is 100% tax-deductible (Tax Id # 94-2398637).
  • Your company may match your donation dollar for dollar, doubling the impact of your donation. To find out if your Employer offers a Matching Gifts program, see your Human Resources department. Please note that some employers require you to donate through their site in order to participate in their Matching Gifts program.
  • There are no overhead costs for the Jaguar Fund fundraiser, so every penny you contribute goes directly to sustain important school programs and positions.

Employee Matching Gifts Program...another way to support Walnut Acres!

Many companies have an Employee Matching Gifts program. Employee Matching gifts are donations an employer makes to match its employees' charitable contributions. This is an easy way to double the impact of your gift. Some even provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours.

To find out about your company's policy, search for “matching gifts” on your company intranet, or contact your HR department. It only takes a minute to submit your company's matching form and it makes a really big difference for our school. The information you will need is simply:

  • Our name-- Walnut Acres PFC (or Parent Faculty Club of Walnut Acres Elementary)
  • Our address-- 180 Cerezo Drive, Walnut Creek, CA 94598 
  • Our tax ID number 94-2398637

It’s that easy! The Employee Matching Gifts Program runs all year long!
