Since its founding in 1950, San Marino Unified School District (SMUSD) has provided excellent educational opportunities for generations of students. However, high quality, innovative education doesn’t just happen. While public education is free, top-rated schools require the financial support of families to fund basic payroll and other essential expenses given the inadequacy of funding for small districts in high income communities like San Marino.
Ensuring excellence in San Marino requires that every family contribute to fund over $2 million in teacher and educational program costs each year. We need everyone to participate to achieve this goal.
Well-funded schools don't just create well-rounded, prepared graduates. Good schools connect our community, maintain property values, and produce the next generation of thoughtful, engaged leaders.
YOUR DONATION TO SMSF SUPPORTS ALL STUDENTS OF THE SMUSD.
EVERY STUDENT BENEFITS. EVERY GIFT COUNTS.
SMSF suggests every parent give $2,500 per child each school year. Donations of any size help to fulfill our financial support of SMUSD and our goal of 100% family participation in our annual campaign. Recognizing that every families’ financial situation is different, we provide payment options, including monthly recurring payments, and suggested donation levels:
