You can support the La Patera PTA by participating in the following fundraising programs.

For general PTA questions, please contact:

Tiger Pride Fund

In addition to the academic curriculum at La Patera, children experience enrichment classes in Music, Art, Science, Computer Technology,and Physical Education. The Tiger Pride Fund is a direct fundraising campaign sponsored by the PTA to raise monies to support these wonderful enrichment classes & programs and expand our children’s education.
Although the Goleta School District provides partial financial support for these enrichment classes, the PTA provides a significant portion needed to ensure the continuation of these programs.

We hope each family will donate to the Tiger Pride Fund campaign. Its success is essential to keep these quality enrichment opportunities at La Patera School and requires a commitment on behalf of our families. A donation in any amount is appreciated and needed. Donations are tax-deductible and your employer may offer a matching contribution at your request.

How to Donate:
1. Donations may be made via the “Tiger” envelope which will be sent home in Friday Folders. You can return donations to your classroom or the office. You may give cash or make a check payable to “La Patera PTA.”
2. Give via Venmo: @LaPatera-Treasurer (please include the Parent/Donor’s name, and your Child/Children’s names and grades).
3. Give via our secure PayPal link (please include the Parent/Donor’s name, and your Child/Children’s names and grades).
