What you are asked to do as an OP family

  • No specific fundraising requirement at OP. (This is unique among cooperative preschools.)

  • We trust our members to be involved and to participate because they care about our school.

  • The more people outside of OP we can involve in our efforts, the more successful we will be! Think about those you can invite to participate with us.

  • We try to to focus on a small number of events and make them as successful as possible.

  • Notice that we are not asking anyone to actually SELL anything.

  • We are a small community so every family’s involvement makes a difference!

  • Approximately 20% of our annual income – we could not function without fundraising.

  • Helps to cover capital improvements & other projects vital to our school.

  • Greatly enhances classroom activities and learning.

  • It’s an easy, fun way to be involved in our school community.
