Donations & Fundraising

Panther Pride Direct Donation

Our children’s education is important to all of us as parents. Orange Grove Middle School has great teachers and programs but state funding does not cover all of the enriching options we want for them. 

That’s why the FFO steps in to provide additional funds from families. Small direct donations from you keep OGMS competitive with even expensive private & charter schools. 

Our kids and teachers rely on the Panther Pride Direct Donation campaign to pay for these extra resources. Rather than a fixed amount, our goal is 100% Participation. If you can give $50, $75, $150, or even just $5 per student, please join everyone in pitching in. 

Make a donation online with the big button below today. Or you can drop cash or a check made out to Orange Grove Middle School FFO in the OGMS front office. 

On behalf of the FFO, the staff and the students, we truly appreciate any amount that you can contribute.

Dine outs are fun. Kids hang out with friends, and parents meet other parents.
