How you can donate

and help CTS

Of our $1,046,753 annual budget, approximately only 7% of our funding comes from our Multnomah County contract, which is our only government funding.  The donations we receive not only make our annual budget possible, they also keep our printers full of ink, our breakfast bowls full of cereal, our clothes closet stacked with new clothing and shoes, our classrooms full of school supplies and our book groups reading new and relevant books.  


Thank you for your interest in helping our school.  Please see our current wishlist:

Box TOps for Education

In 1996, General Mills wanted to create a program to help support education and benefit America’s schools – and so, Box Tops for Education™ was born.  Help support CTS by cutting out and bringing in those box tops.
