Why do we fundraise? The CIS PTA focuses a lot of energy on fundraising, and some families may be wondering why we do it. The San Francisco school district pays for our teacher salaries and provides some funding for school supplies; the PTA pays for everything else -- literacy tools (guided readers and books for the library in Chinese and English); dance, music and art classes for students; technology in the classroom (ELMO projectors and laptop computers); supplemental teacher training, workshops and classes; recess monitors and Playworks-like coaching – and a whole lot more. Your donations help improve the quality of CIS and make a significant difference in your child’s experience at the school.

CIS has two major fundraising activities each year:

  1. Annual Fund
  2. Spring Gala and Auction

If you have questions about general CIS fundraising please contact Charlie Gregg, VP of Fundraising for the CIS PTA.
