Support Grades of Green

Hermosa Beach’s Grades of Green Team does not currently receive any funding from the city, state, school district, HVPTO or HBEF and has no overhead costs (our program is run entirely by volunteers). We are seeking financial support from community business partners and organizations to help sponsor Hermosa Beach’s Grades of Green Team Activities. Specifically, we need help covering the hard cost of lesson materials, including manipulatives (e.g, solar car kits, stopwatches, radiometers, thermometers, etc.), printing and copying costs, assemblies, and student led campaigns.

Our goal is to raise $3,000 to cover the program costs for the upcoming school years. We need to have 50% of the funds raised by November 30th, to cover the costs of the current school year’s programs. The remainder raised by May 15th will be applied to the following school year.


Please note that all donations are tax-deductible. Donations should be made to Grades of Green HVPTO (Tax ID # 91-2156228). All local businesses that donate will receive an acknowledgement in the weekly HVPTO Surf Report newsletter and on our social media. For more information, contact us at
