The Foundation mission is to support the comprehensive, well-rounded education parents expect and value from the Novato Charter School. This includes providing funding for the acclaimed Specialty Programs, investing in the growing quality of core subjects, and supporting and rewarding the heart of our school — its teachers.

Thanks to our donors, we have accomplished:

  • Consistent quality and growth of Music, Spanish Language, Performing Arts, Handwork, Organic Gardening, Movement and electives.
  • Major funding for enhanced Environmental Education, Inquiry-based Science, and Middle School Mathematics with impressive results.
  • Successfully ending the voluntary teacher and staff salary freeze in place since 2008.

The Foundation is pleased to report on its 2012-13 accomplishments:

  • Annual Giving per/student/month continues growing, as well as the proportion of families contributing on a monthly basis (sustaining members)
  • Family participation in Annual Giving at 98% vs 93% last year
  • Enchanted Garden Auction breaks another record – 4th year straight
  • Total (gross) fundraising up 5.7% from last year
  • Total fundraising higher for 4th straight year

But  the best part is actually seeing how the parents’ decision to make their children’s education a chief financial priority has paid off: The school continues to offer a rich, broad and meaningful curriculum; we’ve retained all of our talented, beloved teachers and staff, and met our school-wide academic performance goals of 2012-13.
