Giving to Cleveland Humanities Magnet
Making a Difference One Gift at a Time
Every gift made to Cleveland Humanities Magnet, whether of resources, wish list items requested by our teachers or volunteer time, is vitally important to the continued success of the program. Giving supports our efforts to maintain a rigorous, interdisciplinary program that challenges our students and our teachers and allows them to grow and develop.
With financial pressures continuing to plague California, and monetary support from the school district continuing to decline, it is incumbent on us as parents, guardians, friends, alumni and fans of Cleveland Humanities Magnet to step up in any way possible to keep this program going and growing.
Opportunities to Give
Fall Fundraising Campaign
Cleveland Humanities Magnet High School continues to be one of the most prestigious high schools in Los Angeles. The innovative and exciting curriculum provides our children with the opportunity to expand their knowledge-base as they get ready to enter the next phase of their educational journey. In addition to the acquisition of knowledge, students become part of a learning community that supports their social and emotional growth. Teachers and staff work side-by-side with our strong Magnet Parents Association to ensure our students have the tools they need for success.

The MPA hosts a number of events throughout the school year, where we ask for volunteers and contributions of food/beverages and other items. These events include, but are not limited to:
Core Experience Night – where our teachers teach the parents!
COREchella – A CORE experience unlike any other, where students (and sometimes teachers) provide a night of amazing musical entertainment. COREchella is held in the spring. We need silent auction and opportunity drawing items. Please consider becoming a sponsor on behalf of your family or your company/business.
Look for our wish board at orientation, at Back-to-School Night, Open House and at our monthly MPA meetings for an opportunity to fulfill the requests our teachers have for classroom items, gift cards for food for student events, etc.

High school is the right time to get involved; in fact, in many ways, our students need us most in 9-12 grade.

Volunteer opportunities are discussed at the monthly MPA meetings and include the following committees:
- Fundraising (including sponsorship, fundraising events, grant writing)

- Parent communications
- College outreach
