WHAT IS THE TIGER FUND?
The Tiger Fund is Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter’s “direct ask” fundraiser in which 100% of Tiger Fund donations are used at Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter. Historically, SOPA has been a major contributor to many of the programs and services that make Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter a rewarding educational experience for our students with the Tiger Fund fully funding the Enrichment Programs such as:
COMPUTERWISEKIDS PROGRAM AND INSTRUCTOR
ART EXPLORERS PROGRAM WITH 3 INSTRUCTORS
SCIENCE PROGRAM AND INSTRUCTOR
GARDEN RANGER PROGRAM AND INSTRUCTOR
TOTAL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM EXPENSES PER YEAR: $215,340.00
Your tax deductible Tiger Fund donation will help to sustain our innovative enrichment programs and support these essential services.
This year, we hope to achieve 100% participation from all SOEC families.
Since we are an Affiliated Charter, don’t we have plenty of funding?
Unfortunately, no. Without your financial assistance, these programs will be lost. The TIGER FUND helps raise funds to support these programs and services and make a difference for each and every student.
WHERE ELSE DO YOUR DOLLARS GO?
SOPA offers a teacher stipend for supplies, maintains a bookkeeper, insurance and other misc supplies and fees.
