ANNUAL GIVING 

Annual Giving is a term you will hear throughout your time at Canyon Charter School. It’s our year-long campaign to build our fund that supports all the enrichment programs that make this school such an esteemed, highly ranked local southern California public school, truly a gem in the LAUSD system.

Throughout the year, you will see our requests to support this campaign, as we intend to recruit each and every family to do their part in securing the incredible reputation this school has earned. It’s an invaluable circular relationship, as the involvement and fundraising efforts of all the committees at Canyon Charter School lead to an enviable endowment every year providing the most excellent public education environment to our children – which in turn attracts more and more involved and caring families to join our school roster, and even local businesses to support and uphold our promise to the neighborhood. It’s a relationship that needs constant feeding, but reaps our children and our community immense rewards. 

Donate to Annual Giving now at the online store or print out the donation form and bring it into the school office. 

We're looking for 100% participation.
