family giving

If you are not a currently enrolled school family and would like to support our schools,
please visit our Community Giving and/or Business Giving pages here.

DONATE ONLINE

For over forty years, the Orinda community of school parents, residents, and businesses have maintained a long standing tradition of financially supporting its schools, filling the gap between what is provided by state and local governments, and what our children need to thrive.

California ranks in the bottom third of the nation in public school funding yet our schools, elementary through high school, are some of the top performing schools in the state. Many communities, like Orinda, depend on local sources such as parcel taxes and parent and community donations to augment state funding. These additional monies pay for important programming and staff, including art and music instruction, physical education, electives, librarians, and college counseling. 

Our goal is 100% family participation so please donate at whatever level is possible for you.

Donate by check

Donating by check is a fast and convenient way to make your donation in support of Orinda's schools, alleviating the fees associated with credit card purchases. In addition, if you have students at more than one school, you can write one check to Orinda Network for Education and have your donation allocated to multiple school sites. 

For prompt and accurate processing of your donation, please download and fill out this paper form to accompany your check. It will ask you to provide your name, address, phone, email, and student(s) name with school designation(s), as well as how you would like your name to appear in public recognition lists. 

Please mail your check to:

Employer Matching Donations

Through employer matching programs, you can significantly increase your donation to ONE. Even retired employees can often participate. Generally, gifts are matched up to 12 months after donation has been made, although the timing varies from company to company.

 

Visit our Double the Donation search tool to see if your employer will match your donation. Please have matching donations directed to "Orinda Network for Education," with a comment, note, or project name to  indicate your school affiliation(s). 

 

Also check with the Human Resources department at your company to obtain information about your company’s matching gift program. The impact of your gift to ONE may be doubled or possibly tripled! If you need any assistance in filling out matching gift forms, please contact Meredith Friedman at administrator@oneorinad.org.

Legacy Society and Planned Giving

The ONE Legacy Society is an association of individuals who have included ONE in their estate plans.

 

Planned Gifts include bequests made through wills, retirement plans, and revocable trusts, as well as lifetime gifts that provide income payments to donors and their beneficiaries. Life income gifts such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts typically involve present-day transfers of gift assets, immediate tax advantages, and continuing income streams to the donor with future distributions to ONE for its specific charitable purposes.

 

Charitable lead trusts can also offer significant tax advantages to the donor and reliable streams of charitable income to ONE.

 

If you haven’t already named "Orinda Network for Education" (ONE) in your estate planning documents and/or retirement instruments, please contact your estate planning attorney and/or financial advisor for advice and assistance with amending your estate planning documents and/or beneficiary forms.
