Our Children's Fund



~Recipient of the 2007 Greater West Bloomfield Community Achievement Award~

Our Children’s Fund meets emergency needs and provides resources to help ensure that every student in West Bloomfield School District is able to participate in academic and enrichment activities.

Members of the Steering Committee of Our Children’s Fund wish to thank all of the wonderful staff, parents and students of the West Bloomfield School District as well as other community organizations and individuals who have contributed generously to ensure that Our Children’s Fund is able to provide the many necessary needs to students throughout the school year.  Funding requests have included necessities such as medical & dental expenses, eyeglasses, school supplies & clothing, summer school classes & academic enrichment, gas, food, utility bills as well as assistance at the holidays in December. For over a decade, OCF has been a safety net for our children putting hope back into their lives as well as that of their families. 

Our Children’s Fund Tribute Cards

Let someone know that they are special by making a contribution, in their name, to Our Children’s Fund. Tribute Cards for Our Children’s Fund are available throughout the school year at all West Bloomfield schools and are sold individually for a minimum contribution of $5 each or in attractive packages of five with a minimum donation of $25.  As always, your contribution is tax-deductible and thanks to the generosity of the WBSD, 100% of your contribution goes directly to helping students in need. 

Contributions may also be sent to Our Children’s Fund, c/o WBSD, 5810 Commerce Rd, West Bloomfield, MI 48324.  For more information contact your school social worker.

*An OCF contribution is a great way to acknowledge a favorite teacher, administrator and/or graduate as the school year draws to a close.

Your contributions truly make a difference in the lives of our students, therefore, our entire community benefits.  We want to make sure we have not overlooked a single child/family in need and need your help to realize that goal. Please help our school community by informing the families you interact with about Our Children’s Fund and the help we can offer.
