Immersion Support Fund

Way to go McDonald! We've raised enough to keep all of our current IAs - we did it! But now that we know there will be 3 new Kindergarten classes next year (rather than 2), our goal has increased from $400k to $425k to make sure there's enough IA and Intern support for all of our immersion classrooms.

We're asking new incoming Kindergarten families to close that gap and raise the extra funds needed to provide immersion support in their classroom next year. Please donate today. So far:

We've raised $384,004.00.

Donate to the General Fund

If you've pledged a student for the 2013 Move-A-Thon or just want to donate to the General Fund, this is the place.

We're Still Accepting Donations!


Thanks for your support of our 2013-14 General Fund, which pays for everything the PTA finances for McDonald, outside of the Immersion Assistants and Interns. Our General Fund provides for:

  • Literacy tutors and math programs in the classroom
  • Reading library leveled books in English, Japanese and Spanish
  • Teacher mini-grants for supplemental teaching aids and classroom materials
  • Special enrichment projects inside and outside the classroom
  • Field trip and After School Activities scholarships so every student can participate
  • The arts program and music at McDonald
  • Our school directory to keep us all connected
  • Community events
  • and more

Our fundraising goal of $84,000 averages to $225 per student, but please feel comfortable giving what you can. Every donation makes a difference.

100% of the donations received will benefit McDonald International students and are tax deductible!

Payment by Check (Preferred)

Checks are preferred because 100% of your funds will go directly to McDonald. Make your check out to “McDonald Elementary PTA" with "Move-a-Thon" in the memo line.
