Jaguar Fund

SUPPORTING EVERY CHILD - EVERY DAY

What is the Jaguar Fund?

The Jaguar Fund is one of the Parent Faculty Club’s primary sources 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 $160,000 which is 47% of our income goal for this year.

The suggested donation for the 2021-2022 school year is $65 per month or a one-time donation of $650, per child.

Donations can be made via Konstella here: DONATE NOW

YOUR DONATION MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

The PFC's operating budget for this school year is $334,275. Of that, $252,180 will be invested in staffing. See the complete approved PFC Budget here. We focused on the positions and programs that will have the greatest impact on our children's education. 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 every student's learning.

Your donation to the Jaguar Fund will make a difference for your students education!

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.

How can I contribute?

  • You can contribute anytime in Konstella, our online directory. DONATE NOW

  • Online donation requires a MasterCard/Visa payment.

  • If you prefer to pay by check, please mail your check to: Walnut Acres Elementary School, Attn: Jaguar Fund, 180 Cerezo Drive, Walnut Creek, CA 94598.

NEED TO SPREAD OUT PAYMENTS? We now offer a monthly, recurring payment option. Break up your donation into multiple payments by setting up a recurring credit card payment on the Konstella Donation Page.

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

  • The date and amount of your gift

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