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

smaller classes

Librarian, books and resources

Teacher Aides

additional instructors

school supplies

Make a difference
The programs and resources funded by your donations to FOO cost approximately $1,500 per 1st-5th grade student, and $1,650 per TK/K student.

Family annual donation

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.

Gala and Auction

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.

Alumni friends and family

As a member of Overland’s Alumni family, you understand the importance of giving back, ensuring that Overland continues to be an extraordinary school in our neighborhood.
