How we decide what to fund

Fundraising Priorities Survey

We have conducted a survey asking Bret Harte students, parents, and staff what they want Friends of Bret Harte Elementary to fundaraise for.

Priority Score

We asked them to rank 10 items from most important to least important, then computed priority scores. 10 items were selected at Friends of Bret Harte meetings by listening to opinions from parents, teachers, and community members. We also asked respondents to write in any items that were not in the list but they wanted us to fundraise for.

Emergency Requests

We accept requests from students, teachers, and families to respond to emergency needs.
