Quality Schools Begin With You!

-Donate To The MCHS Family Giving Campaign-


Want to know the biggest difference between schools that have the resources they need and those that don’t? It’s simple. It’s the support of school families. Basic funding for public schools just doesn’t cover the costs of providing a high-quality educational experience anymore in California. It’s up to our families to ensure students at Maria Carrillo High School have the resources they need and that are available at many other schools.


That is why it’s so critical that we have the participation of all families in this year’s 2018 MCHS Family Giving Campaign. You can have a direct impact on your child’s education by making a tax-deductible donation. Every dollar raised goes directly toward enhancing the academic and social experience of all students.


Our goal is to raise $60,000 to fund a variety of classroom/lab supplies and student activities that are no longer supported by district budgets. We encourage you to decide on a donation level that is comfortable for your family. If your company has a matching program, please apply. We have received donations ranging from $5 to $700. Any amount is welcome and helps our school. Our teachers, many of whom donate as well, are very grateful for your help!

  • You may donate online via credit card or PayPal by going to and clicking on the “Donate button.”

  • Or, drop off your check/cash and the donation form at the Counseling Office. There is a donation box on the desk of Secretary Lori Banks. Checks can be made out to "MCHS Parent Association."

  • Or mail your check and the donation form to: MCHS Association, 6975 Montecito Blvd., Santa Rosa, 95409.

Only 5% of the funds collected are spent on administration expenses, such as electronic communication, PayPal processing fees, tax preparation.
