Now more than ever, Oakland's public school students need our help.

Under the state's proposed budget cuts, California's per-student spending will rank last in the nation. These cuts will directly affect Oakland's kids. But as the lead story in our newsletter shows, Oakland students like Huber Trenado are doing amazing things even in the face of considerable odds.

Huber's is just one story: Across the 38 elementary, middle, and high schools in the OSSF network, we serve 12,000 public school students who all deserve an equal shot at success. We are here to help, but we can't do it without you. You can have a real impact on the lives of our students today by supporting the Oakland Small Schools Foundation. Click here to donate now!

When you donate to OSSF, your $1 turns into $5 for schools, which they will use to fund field trips, internships, family engagement programs, and other crucial needs that schools simply cannot pay for within their existing budgets.

We need your financial support. If you have given before, we thank you, and hope you will give again. Consider a monthly recurring gift – just a dollar a day turns into nearly $2,000 for schools by year's end. Please check at work to see if there is a matching-gift program. You can give online here or send a check to "OSSF," P.O. Box 20238, Oakland, CA 94620. We thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Holly Babe Faust
Executive Director
