Annual membership in ALLEM is just $15, and the suggested amount is $500 per child for the year ($50/month per child). We know that not everyone can give that much, but please give what you can or as much as your wallet can afford. Your donations make a tremendous difference in our children’s environment and education. This is how we fund our Adjunct program, so that each child can get all the individualized attention he/she needs and deserves. You can pay all at once up front, make monthly payments or break it into as many payments as is convenient for you.

For just $50 per month per child or $500 a year, you can be assured that you’re doing your part to help your child succeed in our unique and rewarding language program. We truly can’t do it without your help.
Payments can be mailed to ALLEM at Post Office Box 5532, Culver City, CA 90231-5532 or deposited in the Advocates for Language Learning El Marino (“ALLEM”) box in the office at El Marino. Please consider supporting ALLEM at one of the levels listed on our pledge form.

Don’t forget to ask your company if they do matching contributions!

Thank you!! Your financial support is 100% tax-deductible and 200% appreciated!

Box Tops for Education

ALLEM earns a dime for every single BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION label we collect. That may not sound like a big deal, but some schools earn thousands of dollars through this totally free and incredibly simple program!

All you have to do is cut/rip/bite off the Box Tops for Education labels (printed on the packages of a wide range of products you’re already buying) and drop them into the labeled box in the cafeteria — or your child can turn them in to his or her teacher.

Remember: It’s free. It’s easy. It’s as good as fundraising gets!
