Momentum 2019 Raises $650,000! Thank you for supporting PEF.

We did it! Thank you to all who supported the Pasadena Educational Foundation by attending or sponsoring the Celebrating Our Schools MOMENTUM 2019 spring event and contributing to the 2019 Momentum Challenge Match. With your support, we met the challenge and raised over $650,000 for PEF’s vital programs and initiatives. We are grateful to the Helen & Will Webster Foundation for so generously donating $250,000 in matched funds.

Our Pasadena Unified schools have great momentum. We see it every day, on every campus. Our students are engaged with innovative programs developing the skills they need to leap into their bright futures.

As we look forward to celebrating PEF’s 50th anniversary, we know how pivotal community support is to the success of our schools and our students. Your support helps us continue this momentum and ensures that every one of our community’s children has the educational opportunities they deserve.

We have a lot more to do and more success stories to share. Thank you for being by our side and believing in supporting public education. We can’t do it without you.
