Support Colfax

Opportunities are available throughout the year to support Colfax in a variety of ways. We encourage all Colfax parents to donate to Annual Giving, shop our affiliate links and participate in our events so we can continue to fund so many important programs that make our school one of LAUSD's best.

 

Annual giving

PACE is the sole provider of classroom aides, art, technology, science, music and much more at Colfax. Annual Giving is our largest fundraiser each year and the primary opportunity to ensure the continuation of vital programs that make Colfax the special, award-winning school community it is today and will continue to be.

 

To learn more, see this year's incentive gifts and make a donation today...

World Fair

The Colfax World Fair is our signature fundraising event, loved by Colfax families and our surrounding community. Each year on a Saturday in mid-May, our campus is transformed into an amazing fair featuring bouncies, water slides, dozens of family-friendly games and attractions, two food courts, a huge silent auction with over 500 items, raffles and musical performances throughout the day.
 
Colfax parents, friends and community volunteers join together to produce the World Fair to raise funds for student enrichment as well as traditional programs that have been slashed by LAUSD budget cuts. Even the COVID-19 pandemic couldn't stop the Colfax World Fair team. In 2021, we took to the streets of Valley Village, popping up over 30 attractions and food booths over two weekends for a socially distant, masked World Fair.
 
A DAY OF FUN. A WORLD OF GOOD.
 
 
 

 

PARTY BOOK

Our Colfax-only theme parties are a fun way to build community while raising money for our school. Hosts donate everything that goes into the party and craft a theme that's fun for adults, kids or both. Tickets can be purchased on our website and all the money raised goes straight back to the classrooms.

 

If you have a skill or passion or just love to throw a great party, perhaps you'll consider hosting one.

TURKEY TROT / FALL FITNESS FAIR

The goal of this event is to promote healthy habits, physical fitness and fun while teaching our kids the importance of giving back by raising money for their school. The event takes place on the track and playground area where students participate 4 different activity stations: Dance, Basketball Skills, Turkey Trot Relay Race & Martial Arts.

 

Each student will have their own online fundraising page setup by their parents. We welcome you to invite your families, neighbors & friends to support your child’s participation in this fun event!

 

 

 


 

READ-A-THON

This school-wide event is designed to foster and develop our students’ reading proficiency and love of books. Students are encouraged to read as much as they possibly can to win prizes for the most minutes read. The 2019 Read-A-Thon raised enough money to purchase beautiful new frames for our Best Book Forward wall outside the office along with helping us finalize our library renovation with a new Family Resource Center including an electronic National Geographic subscription and new books.

 

In 2020, our principal promised to shoot a music video in the Colfax Farm and even kiss our new pig, Peppa, if we could reach $20,000 as a school. Check out the awesome - and hilarious video!

 

 


 

KIDCHELLA

Learn Guitar! Play Keyboard! Learn to Sing! Play Drums! Perform Onstage! Form a Band with your Friends!

 

Kidchella is a Spring tradition at Colfax. Students in 2nd through 5th grade are eligible to participate in bands, but EVERYONE is invited to attend the rock show! Burbank Music Academy graciously provides 5 weeks of music instruction for our bands as they learn to play/sing the song of their choice and get ready for their big performance.

 

 


 

GRAND GIVING TREE

We're so fortunate at Colfax to have many grandparents, family members, friends and neighbors who are committed to supporting our school. Donors can participate in the Grand Giving Tree, receiving a personalized leaf message for their special Colfax student on our banner at school.

For new families, this must seem overwhelming. We KNOW! But, we promise, we have a whole lot of fun along the way. We fundraise year-round because it costs PACE over half a million dollars to fund all the important staff members and programs we pay for each year. Want to learn more??
