We are Volunteers

Making a Difference

We are Brentano parents, administrators, teachers, staff and community members who are interested in supporting the school through volunteerism. We help plan, organize, and manage various events throughout the year. All levels of involvement are welcome and no time commitment is to big or too small.


We are Fundraisers

Reinforcing our Commitment

We find opportunities throughout the year to fundraise for Brentano, with our largest fundraiser being our annual Silent Auction. A few of the things we have raised money for are: Teacher Appreciation Week, school beautification and new landscaping, a popcorn machine for school events, new basketball backboards and gymnasium wall pads. Ongoing fundraising initiatives are: sound and lighting equipment for the Drama department, Art Supplies for each homeroom and a climbing wall.

We are Community

Supporting our Neighborhood

We love the Brentano Community and through our monthly meetings and family events, we are focused on remaining an inclusive and diverse community.


What We Do

Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
