Annual Fund

The Annual Fund - Gets it Done!

The goal of the Annual Fund at Roosevelt is raise money directly from parents to help support critical programs and positions not funded by the State or District. While a public education is free, donations help make Roosevelt GREAT!  The money collected by the Annual Fund and other fundraisers at our school is managed and distributed by the Roosevelt Elementary Educational Fund (REEF).


Every dollar you give helps provide your children with essential educational resources including classroom and art supplies, field trips and enrichment programs and materials for every grade.  But by far the most expensive cost to REEF this year is funding our curriculum specialists.  The specialists assist our teachers and are essential to our success here at Roosevelt by allowing for smaller group instruction that directly improves reading, writing, and math skills for our children. 

  • This year REEF plans to fund FIVE curriculum specialists to ensure we have coverage for every grade and we need your help.

  • Our goal for the Annual Fund is to raise $90,000 by December 15th to help pay for these positions.  Combined with other fundraising events, we need to raise a total of $200,000 by the end of the school year!

  • To reach this goal we are asking for a $500 donation for each child at Roosevelt.
