Announcing our Annual Giving Pizza Party Contest!

Annual Giving is our most important fundraiser of the year, as 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Magnet program to fund our amazing new teacher’s aide, plus computers & software, field trips, class enrichment, and much more. Let’s make sure our kids have the best we can give them, every day, at Braddock Gifted Magnet.

We want everyone included in this fundraiser – it’s your chance to contribute directly to the things that make Braddock Gifted Magnet one of the very best in all of LA Unified.

To spice it up a bit, we are bringing back the Pizza Party contest – you know your kid wants to win!!

The class with the highest level of participation on October 31st will win a Fabulous Pizza Party for their class. Last year Ms S’ 2nd grade won the contest and had a Pizza Party – will they do it again this year???

There is no minimum amount required to participate in the contest—our goal is 100% participation so please donate what you can.

There are 3 easy ways to donate:
1. Send a check to school in your child’s homework folder. Label the envelope “FOB Annual Giving, c/o Diego, Room 9” and indicate your child’s name and grade in the notes section of the check.

2. Donate via the PayPal link on our website: Type your child’s name and grade in the optional “Note” box. You can choose to pay now or in future installments, which can be set up through the Paypal link. If you would like to pledge to donate in the future, please send me an email to with your pledge amount and date(s), and we would be happy to send you a reminder email when the time comes. Donations made before October 31st will qualify for the Classroom Pizza Party Contest!!

3. Pay via credit card at school pick up. Our FOB Treasurer, Carlos Colorado will be available after school Friday, October 6 to swipe your credit card or collect your check.

GOOD NEWS – you can DOUBLE your gift if your employer has a gift matching program. Turn your $1000 donation into $2000 for the school! Check with your payroll or HR staff to find out! Contact FOB for the address and tax ID number. The mission of FOB is to provide educational materials and activities for our students.

And rest assured that any donation from a grandparent, relative or friend still counts for your class participation! So send this info on and make sure anyone donating notes your child’s name so your class gets credit.

Now’s the time! Make your donation today!
