Ways to Give

Support Student Success for thousands of Alameda K-12 public school students!

Make a Donation 

Your contribution supports vital programs in art, music, drama, sports, science, technology and much more that prepare children for the future and keep our Alameda schools strong and thriving.  Consider a monthly donation to generate support all year long.

Matching Gifts

You can double the impact of your gift to AEF if you or your spouse’s workplace has an employee matching gift program.  Ask your employer if they offer a Corporate Giving Campaign and sign up to double your impact!

Donate Securities

Donating stock enables you to make a greater impact on a charity than selling it first, paying capital gains tax and donating the proceeds.  AEF has established an endowment fund for stock donations to perpetuate your support for future generations of Alameda students. Our flyer shows you how it works.  Email for more information.

You may also wish to establish a Donor Advised Fund

Make a Legacy Gift

Please consider making a legacy gift to ensure that AEF remains strong and thriving for future generations.  Bequests, retirement plan gifts, trusts, life insurance, and estate plan gifts are among the many kinds of legacy gifts that can perpetuate your support even after your lifetime.  Email for more information.

Empower a teacher

Make a difference in a classroom by adopting a teacher through our  Adopt A Classroom program.

Equip a Student 4 Success

Add a couple bucks to your power bill
