Donate to the Friends and Family Campaign

Carnegie Vanguard High School needs your support!

With the HISD budget declining, the PTO support is more important than ever!

The Friends & Family campaign is the main fundraiser for the CVHS PTO. Without a membership fee, we solely rely on your generosity. And every donation we receive, no matter the amount, is appreciated and recognized! We use your donation to fund the support we give to Carnegie, the staff and the students. Every dollar you donate is used for the good of the school and/or students.
