Bylaws

The Twin Creeks School Learning Fund has adopted the following BYLAWS

Learning Fund

What is the Twin Creeks Learning Fund?

The Twin Creeks Learning Fund (LF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds and determining the most effective use of those funds to help maintain and enhance the quality of education at Twin Creeks Elementary School.  This is accomplished through the collaboration of parents, educators, the school’s Site Council, the school’s PTA, and the community.  In addition, the Learning Fund works closely with the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF), the primary fundraising organization working in partnership with the San Ramon Valley Unified School District to provide financial support and promote public education in our community.

 

Why is the Learning Fund needed?

California has fewer school staff per pupil than any other state in the nation, and also spends less than the national average per pupil.  The parents and staff of Twin Creeks believe that our students deserve advanced computer technology, art and music education, math and reading specialists, and additional hours for the library and physical education.  The Learning Fund was established to provide the critical technology and additional staff that the school district and the state simply do not fund.  We work hard to elevate the level of education at Twin Creeks, but we need your support to be successful!

 

How can I help support the Learning Fund?

  • Make a donation to the Learning Fund today using the Twin Creeks Registration Website.  For just $1 per school day (that's just $180), we can continue to provide Classroom Assistants in Kindergarten and Science, a Reading Specialist, PE, Music, Art and Librarian hours, and enhanced Technology!

  • Alternatively, you can make a secure one-time gift via the PayPal link in the left column of this page.  All donations are tax deductible!

  • Find out if your employer matches your donation as corporate matching can often double your donation!

  • Do you shop at Safeway, Draeger's, and/or Lunardi's?  Sign up or renew your eScrip account and make sure you have indicated Twin Creeks School Learning Fund as your beneficiary.  This is a simple and effective way to help at no cost to you.  Additional information is available on this printable flyer which you can distribute to friends and family. 

  • Sign up for a Target Redcard (debit or credit card) from Target and indicate you want your beneficiary to be Twin Creeks Elementary School.

  • Support our annual fundraisers (Mixed Bag, Read-A-Thon).

  • Attend our annual Auction Fundraiser in the Spring!

Learning Fund Information and Resources

The Twin Creeks Learning Fund is only possible through the volunteer efforts of parents in the community like you.  The Learning Fund's fundraising and decision-making activities are overseen by its Board of Directors.  We are in need of new directors, so please do not hesitate to contact a member of the current board if you would like to get involved.  The board can consist of anywhere from 7 to 15 directors.  This includes the school principal, a school faculty member, a PTA representative, and a School Site Council representative.  Each Director is elected for a two-year term.  Directors typically have the following responsibilities:

 

  1. Attend the board meetings.

  2. Take on an officer role (President, VP, Secretary, Treasurer, Financial Secretary, etc.)

  3. Chair or help with at least one of our fundraisers.  There are typically four fundraisers including mixed bags/wrapping paper, spelling bee, read-a-thon, and auction.

  4. Represent the Learning Fund at one or more school-wide events, including registration (mid-August), back to school night (early September), kindergarten assessment (early May), and open house (late May).

Board members will also work with Principal Barb Mallon and one or two of our Twin Creeks teachers.  Participating on the Learning Fund Board is a great way to make a significant difference in the quality of your child’s school.  So come out and give it a try!  And even if you don’t want to be a Director, come to the meetings which are open to anyone who is part of the Twin Creeks community.  You are welcome to vote on issues if you have donated any amount of money to the Learning Fund.  We hope to see you at an upcoming meeting!
