No student is denied entry to TEAM, nor will they be denied participation in any of TEAM's events, for financial reasons.

TEAM is a nonprofit organization that has its own surplus of funding. However, to diffuse the costs of running the program each year, TEAM needs to collect approximately $20,000 in additional funds. Program funding is provided privately through generous parent and community support. Contributions by participating students are required to support the purchase of supplies, to underwrite field trips, to pay for substitutes while TEAM teachers are away from their other classes while on field trips, and collaborative projects. Some local companies assist with matching funds programs for employees.

Contributions to TEAM are tax deductible: federal tax ID number is 770454317.

Typically, TEAM asks each family to donate $400 to cover the cost of running the program. Additionally, we ask families to contribute $600 to cover some of our expenses for the Yosemite field trip.

Scholarships are made possible by the TEAM program and are available to any families who need them. Families should document the need with the school's assistant principal. Families should never worry about their ability to participate in TEAM activities for financial reasons.
