Support Holden


Your generous tax-deductible donations help us achieve our mission today and for future generations.

The greatest gift we can give our students is to provide them with all the tools they need to thrive academically and socially as they prepare for a successful life beyond high school.

Ways To Give

When combined with those of other Holden parents, trustees, alumni, and friends, your donation has a powerful impact on Holden. Thank you fo your support!

Use our secure, online gift-giving platform to make a tax-deductible one-time or recurring donation.

Please send checks payable to “Holden High School” and mail to Holden High School, 10 Irwin Way, Orinda, CA 94563

You may be able to double – even triple! – your donation to Holden. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match. 

Car donations are an easy way to support Holden. You’ll receive a tax-deduction, often at a higher value than if you traded in your car to the dealer, and Holden gets additional funds for our programs. Email or call (925)254-0199 to get started!

Gifts of stocks or bonds offer two tax advantages to many donors. First, by contributing appreciated securities held for more than one year, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation. Second, you qualify for a charitable deduction on your income tax based on the value of the securities on the date you make a gift. 

Planned giving is an especially meaningful way to honor the impact Holden/CCAS has had on your life or the life of a loved one.

If you are considering including Holden in your Will or Trust, please contact Mawiyah Johnson, Fundraising Manager, to discuss your options, at

Why Give

Tuition covers approximately 70% of the cost of educating our students. When you give to Holden, you help support field trips, athletic teams, elective classes, and a full slate of student activities worthy of a much larger school.

Gifts to Holden are unrestricted and help pay for many of our programs and resources, including:

Professional development for our incredible teachers to help them remain current with the best teaching practices for our population of students.  

Consistent technology upgrades to ensure that our students and teachers have access to up-to-date technology that enhances the classroom learning experience.

A network of student support programs that empower students to realize their full potential as learners and people.
