Parents for Carpenter

It’s up to all of us to invest in our kids and make sure they get a world-class education

Parents for Carpenter (PFC) is the fundraising arm of Carpenter Community Charter. We are a non-profit volunteer organization that was formed in 1986 by a group of enthusiastic parents for the sole purpose of raising funds to support Carpenter Community Charter. PFC is dedicated to endowing programs that have been curtailed due to federal, state and local budget limits.

We are a community-funded school, and as we embrace our charter status, we continue to depend on the money we raise to fund programs that LAUSD does not. Through its ongoing fundraising programs, Parents for Carpenter provides all Carpenter students with enrichment programs such as music, physical education, dance, science lab, art and media lab classes.

PFC also funds classroom downsizing, aides for our teachers and administration, educational materials, technology upgrades and beautification/site improvements.

The Annual Giving Campaign and the Gala raise the majority of our budget, and we rely on parent volunteers for all of our fundraising and committee efforts. PFC exists because parents want, can and do make a difference.

PFC thanks all of our volunteers, families, kids and business partners that support us and make Carpenter a superior place to educate our children.
