Ways to Contribute

Students have many different learning styles and our teachers are constantly seeking ways to best help their students. Instructional materials, equipment, and supplies can help both teachers and students advance comprehension and provide rewarding learning experiences.

You can help support these efforts by donating to the Francisco PTO directly, by granting Teachers' Wishes, or by purchasing materials or equipment through our alliances with provider organizations. Thank you for your consideration.
