The Campaign for Oxford

Our PTA has to raise over $140,000 each year to cover the costs that state and local budgets don’t cover—$500 per child to provide all the great programs we rely upon: essential classroom supplies, PE, art, classroom aides, math support, playground supervision and much more.

Donations to the Oxford PTA are tax-deductible; our federal tax id is 94-6183804. If your donation is for a specific purpose (for example, for a specific classroom, or the Kindergarten music program), please note that so your gift is allocated specifically.

Beyond what is funded by local, state and federal tax measures, Oxford has donation-supported enrichment programs that are a big part of what makes Oxford an outstanding school—and the PTA‘s fundraising pays for a significant number of staffing and other costs of enrichment programs. Donations to the PTA go to the Oxford Enrichment Fund, which is managed by Oxford’s principal, in agreement with Oxford’s School Governance Council (SGC) and PTA to ensure that donations are spent for the greatest impact and benefit for all Oxford’s students.
