Foundation Updates
October 15, 2023


Thank you to those families who joined the Foundation general meeting on October 9th. You can always check for minutes and other information on our website:

Homecoming Dance – October 20th: Thank you to those who have volunteered so far. We are looking for donations for food and drinks. Please sign up here: 

Fall Pie Sale: Given last year’s inaugural sale’s success, the Foundation is holding its annual pie sale. Special thanks to parent Becky Wiegand for leading this effort. Proceeds benefit campus and teacher needs. The 10” frozen pies will last for up to a year in your freezer. Campus pick up on Nov 8 and 9. Order your pies here by October 27th: 

We want your Feedback: So far, our parent involvement survey has yielded 23 responses. Thank you to those who responded! Given the student body is ~880 students, we are hoping for a lot more survey results, so the Foundation can serve our families better. Please complete the survey here by October 31st. Questions about the survey? Please contact Diana Williams Corless at

Want to Volunteer? The Foundation collects volunteer needs from admin, teachers, ASB, and students. Please visit our volunteer opportunities list, FAQs, and other volunteer information here

October Fundraising: There are many ways to support West Campus and in October we’d like to highlight three ways to donate to the Foundation

  • Match your Foundation donations! Want to donate and work for an employer that does donation matching? If you work for Intel, Apple or the hundreds of corporations through Benevity, you can have your employer match your donation through this platform; look up the Foundation or use our Benevity ID #840-731635806. 
  • United Way/Our Promise: If you work for the State of CA, SMUD, Target or 250+ local companies, you can donate through the United Way Our Promise platform. This is not employer matching, but regular payroll deductions. Every dollar donated makes a big impact!
  • Become a Community Partner: If you own a small business and would like to be a community partner, check out our sponsorship levels on our website.

For all fundraising questions or ideas, please contact Rosette Nguyen at
