NEW for 2021! Acute Needs Fund (ANF)
The Acute Needs Fund (ANF) is a fund that was created to support our students and their families. We realize that this is a crazy time and many of our families are being negatively impacted in terms of their finances. If you or anyone you know is experiencing food or housing insecurity, or any other crises resulting from the current pandemic, please know that the O’Keeffe PTG’s Acute Needs Fund may be available to help. Feel free to reach out to the school administration, social workers, or teachers if you need assistance.
If you would like to make your donation specifically for the Acute Needs Fund, please note that on your donation form, put it in the memo of your check, or add it to “Notes” field when you make your online donation.
Thank you for your generous support!
Your donation will help build better experiences which will strengthen school-wide community, encourage student success and grow family engagement at O’Keeffe.
