ABOUT FRIENDS OF THIRD
Friends of Third (FOT) is a booster group established by parent volunteers as a non-profit fundraising arm to provide curricular enhancement and classroom support programs for all students at Third Street School. FOT helps to address the alarming shortfall in the Los Angeles Unified School District’s budget for technology, arts, music and physical education, library services, classroom materials, field trips, and much, much more.
WHO SUPPORTS FRIENDS OF THIRD?
Friends of Third’s annual budget of over $300,000 is supported by the kind efforts and donations of parents, grandparents, neighbors and volunteers, as well as many people and organizations outside the Third Street community.
Over half our budget comes from our Annual Giving Fund, in addition to signature events throughout the year.
