This campaign is one of two major Odyssey fundraisers and it is essentially an email effort designed to urge you to “click the donate button” to submit your annual donation. Many independent schools across the country give guidelines for donations and expect current families to donate 10% of the cost of tuition but, quite honestly, that is not Odyssey’s style. We simply ask you to do the best that you can. The campaign gets underway after our Student/Faculty/Parent Conference Week held every year around the Thanksgiving Holiday.

There are many compelling reasons to support Odyssey School. Truthfully, there is a GAP between what it costs to educate our Odyssey kids in comparison to what we charge and tax-deductible fundraising revenue can narrow this split. Additionally, it is important for Odyssey to maintain its CAIS accreditation and 100% participation by our current families will send the clear signal to our accreditors that Odyssey is here to stay!  Finally, Odyssey’s current COA (cost of attendance) is $10,000 less expensive than local area CAIS schools and, consequently, our COA represents an extraordinary value in the education marketplace.

Please donate to this important fundraising event to help secure Odyssey School’s future as a great educational institution in California!
