how_you_can_help

We're not ashamed to admit it, the Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation could use your help! In fact, as the Foundation operates independently of the district, it is only with the dedicated efforts of volunteers that our mission is successful. Together, with your help, we can make Owen J. Roberts a world-class district that goes well beyond the status quo!

STUDENTS:
We need your ideas and energy to identify needs and help support the exciting programs underwritten by OJREF. Please participate in the projects supported by OJREF and contact the Foundation if you have a suggestion or a need that requires funding and development not provided by the district.

FACULTY:
OJRSD faculty are generally responsible for applying for and administering the Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation mini-grants. We need you to become involved with the Foundation and bring us ideas to help us to continue to make OJR a world-class district.

COMMUNITY MEMBERS:
The Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation is interested in creating bridges between our students and the community at large. We want to identify resources within the community that can help us achieve our mission by volunteering, sponsoring or mentoring.
BUSINESSES:
Did you know that, instead of paying taxes to the state, your business can donate its tax burden to OJREF as an Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC). The Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation is an approved Educational Improvement Organization in Pennsylvania.

Businesses must be authorized to do business in the Commonwealth of PA; be subject to taxes such as Corporate Net Income Tax, Capital Stock Franchise Tax, Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax, etc; and be approved by the State to make contributions under this program.

Under the EITC program, a “contribution” from a business is a donation of cash or the net cost of donated personal property or services. For more details visit the: PA Department of Community and Economic Development EITC or contact OJREF


We have a variety of donation and fundraising options, which would you like to be a part of today?

robotics

Since 2009 OJR high school and middle school have participated in FIRST Robotics, combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. Students get to learn from professional engineers, learn and use sophisticated software and hardware and qualify for more than $14.8 million in college scholarships!

You can support today by helping to raise funds so our students are able to continue to participate in this competition that serves as a valuable piece of their education.
