Crestmont School, the Bay Area’s only cooperative elementary school, is located in the hills of Richmond, California. For almost 50 years now, we have rented our space and have made the best of a tight situation, but in order to sustain our school’s future, we need our own property as we grow to a K-8 school.

We have found a wonderful piece of land to purchase around the corner but we need your help!

We plan to put up portables for the first few years while we design and build structures that are sustainably sourced, using recycled and repurposed materials. This campaign is our Phase 1 Fundraising effort towards giving Crestmont a forever home and we are excited for you to be a part of it! Our goal is to solidify the school’s future as a community resource for years to come.

Your donation today will honor the past, present, and future of Crestmont and our belief in curiosity, critical thinking, community spirit and academic excellence for children of all backgrounds. We thank you!

All donations are tax deductible.
