Please consider donating to the Jose Ortega Education Fund this year!

Your tax deductible donation helps provide many important supplies, programs and activities for our school. Last year over $100,000 was raised through the education fund and Donors Choose to support the teachers and children at Jose Ortega. This year we would like to break that record and give our children the very best we can. Please support our teachers and kids!
