2022-23 Fundraising Goal for STEAM+
DMSEF’s annual goal is to raise $1.4 million to help fund the STEAM+ teachers in our school district. Our mission is important to every student. Since the State of California does not provide funding for STEAM+ teachers in elementary school, DMSEF works in partnership with our district to fund STEAM+ teachers at all nine schools. Based on enrollment at the start of this school year, Ocean Airs’ portion of DMSEF’s fundraising goal is $189,139. With your help this year, we can reach 100% funding for our STEAM+ credentialed specialists who provide robust and engaging instruction for students in the arts, science, physical education and interdisciplinary learning.

DMSEF will hold two fundraisers this year: a Fall Giving Campaign and a Jogathon in early Spring 2023. Contributing the recommended amount of $800 per student per year, or an amount that is meaningful to your family, ensures that our extraordinary STEAM+ program can continue in the next school year.
Thanks to the generous support of families, friends, employers and community partners, DMSEF raised $1.378 million last year. Ocean Airs’ fundraising goal last year was $197,265 and we were able to raise $230,746, or 117% of our goal, with 64% of Ocean Air families contributing. On behalf of DMSEF, we thank you for supporting your child’s education.
Percentage raised: 110% as of February 21, 2023
