Every Student. Every School. Every Day.  DONATE!

Get Involved

We invite community members, parents, teachers and students to get involved with our schools through giving, volunteering, and communicating the value of public education.

Come join us at our Celebrating our Schools Gala event in May or let us connect you with a wide range of volunteer opportunities, advisory committees and community engagement initiatives. Community involvement in programs such as Principal for a Day,  our Realtor Initiative, and Summer Enrichment Program expand our capacity to shape public perception about our schools, and provide essential resources and enrichment opportunities to our teachers and students.

JOIN A COMMITTEE OR BECOME AN AMBASSADOR!

Community Ambassadors believe in public education in Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre, the work of PEF, and want to help spread the word. As a Community Ambassador you will have inside information on PEF programs and events, you will become trained on our presentation, PUSD Today: 15 Things You Might Not Know in order to share it, facilitate discussion at neighborhood meetings, churches, businesses, and other venues, and share posts from PEF on social media. Perhaps you are a member of a neighborhood association, community group or other organization that would like to host a presentation? Get in touch with us! Allison Pultz, apultz@pasedfoundation.org
