All your direct donations are tax-deductible (EIN 86-0652002).
Thank you for your support of our school!
How Does My Student Benefit From The FFO?
The FFO funds classroom supplies not funded by the district, library books, staff development, student incentive programs, enrichment programs including band, choir and art programs. The FFO also purchases major equipment used by the teachers, staff and students, including a weather station, computers, cameras, smartboard equipment, band equipment and sound systems.

How Are FFO Dollars Allocated?
At every FFO meeting the Treasurer gives a financial report and provides a current copy of the annual budget. The annual budget is proposed by the Executive Board and voted on by FFO members. Grants requesting funds for specific purchases are considered first by the Grant Committee and presented for approval at monthly FFO meetings. Meeting agendas are posted in advance. See Agenda.
How Can I Be A Member Of FFO?
All Esperero Canyon families and staff are automatically members of the FFO. You are welcome to attend our monthly meetings and vote on important issues. We have many committees that are active at different times of the year and require various levels of commitment. Come to a meeting and find out what suits your schedule and interests. If you are unable to attend meetings but would like to get involved, please complete the Esperero Canyon Volunteer Form or contact one of the FFO Officers.
