The BAM Giving Campaign raises money for the arts, P.E., field trips, community events, and classroom resources including library diversification and science kits.

The BAM 5th grade field trip is an annual 4-night outdoor education field trip to the Sempervirens Preserve in Boulder Creek, CA. This is an outdoor school site located on 20 acres of redwood and oak forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains! We are dedicated to raising enough funds so that EVERY child who wants to attend this trip is able to, so please help by donating today!


The BAM Family Support Fund is a fund created by the BAM PTA to support the immediate needs of BAM families. Donations go through the Berkeley Public School Fund.  Please make sure to select “Other” in the Program/Project area of the online form and enter “BAM Family Support Fund” in the corresponding field. This will ensure that funds will go directly to families in our community. The BAM Family Support Fund is one way to support families and children who are most in need during these times of crisis, and as disparities in housing, food and economic security grow.


There are a couple really easy (and free to YOU) ways to help BAM raise money when you shop:

Amazon Smile

If you shop online at Amazon, please shop from the BAM Amazon Smile page – this is the same as using Amazon but 0.5% of your purchases goes to BAM. We could raise a lot more for BAM if all BAM families who use Amazon would make this simple switch.

AmazonSmile customers can now support Berkeley Arts Magnet Elementary School PTA in the Amazon shopping app on iOS and Android mobile phones! Simply follow these instructions to turn on AmazonSmile and start generating donations.

  1. Open the Amazon Shopping app on your device 
  2. Go into the main menu of the Amazon Shopping app and tap into ‘Settings’ 
  3. Tap ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process 

eScrip is a hassle-free way for BAM to raise money through every day purchases. You spend money by credit/debit card as you would normally and a percentage of each purchase is sent to BAM. It’s that easy! Just register with eScrip and then just start shopping:
1) Go to and click where it says “Sign up – it’s free!”
2) Designate Berkeley Arts Magnet School, eScrip Group ID 137634981 to receive your contributions.
3) Once you’re registered, you can register your grocery club card from a participating merchant and your debit/credit cards. Or, just start shopping at eScrip’s online mall. As long as you start your shopping from the eScrip page, BAM will get money.

Sports Basement in Berkeley
You can join the Basementeer program at the Berkeley Sports Basement and choose Berkeley Arts Magnet as your charity of choice. You get 10% off your purchases, and 10% of your purchases will also go back to BAM!

Box Top Clippings Now Digital
The Box Tops program is changing to become digital-only. Participating brands are starting to change packaging from a traditional Box Tops to the new Box Tops label. Instead of clipping, Box Tops will be earned through the new mobile app by scanning receipts within 14 days of purchase. The app will automatically add Box Tops to BAM school’s earnings online, giving you visibility into your school’s progress in real time. Read more here.
