Friends of Overland is a nonprofit that raises funds to pay for important programs and equipment that enhance your child’s education experience over and above what public funding provides.
We are “Friends of Overland!”
Friends of Overland or FOO was established in 1985 by parent volunteers to support our school. With an all volunteer board this proud tradition continues as we fundraise every year.
Every parent with a child attending Overland has automatic membership in FOO.
The funds raised by FOO go directly to:
Art, Drama & Music Programs
Science and Computers
Overland in motion
Librarian, books and resources
The Family Annual Donation is our largest fundraising effort of the year, supporting programs and personnel such as more teachers, science, music, drama, arts, library, computers, support staff, teachers’ aides, and more.
Year after year, the FOO Gala and Auction has been critical in raising the funds that reduce class size, support the arts and technology, keep our kids moving through Overland In Motion, along with so many other important initiatives.
Scrip is a program that allows schools like ours to raise money without asking you for a donation. How? The stores you already shop at will contribute a percentage of the money you spend to Overland.
