Corporate Supporters

Whether it’s through monetary gifts, in-kind donations, or volunteering, School on Wheels can individualize partnerships to meet the goals of each corporate donor while also meeting our mission of providing educational assistance to homeless children. If your organization is interested in getting involved with School on Wheels, here are some of the possibilities:

Financial Support

Thousands of homeless children are waiting for help. We rely on financial contributions from our supporters to achieve our goal of doubling the number of homeless children we serve.


With over 150 different tutoring locations, your employees can find volunteer opportunities where they live and work. Employee volunteers give your company greater exposure in the local community while actively supporting a meaningful cause.

In-Kind Donations

Partners can create in-kind donation programs that are a tremendous opportunity to showcase products and services to people and organizations that need them most. View our Student Wish List.

We are always happy to talk with corporations about possible sponsorships, partnerships, and opportunities. Please get in touch at

mail to: School on Wheels, P O Box 23371, Ventura, CA 93002
or call: (805) 641-1678

Student Wish List

Every homeless child that we meet receives a backpack filled with school supplies. In 2014 we gave supplies to over 6,000 students.

Next time you are shopping for school supplies for your family, why not pick up some extra and send them to School on Wheels? Please note – We only accept and distribute new backpacks and school supplies. *Starred* items are needed the most, thank you!

If you have any questions regarding donating school supplies, please send an email to: or call: (805) 641-1678
