Our Stories

Thank you! Your support comes in many ways.

As we enter this season of thanks, we want to extend our gratitude to the community for supporting the Pasadena Educational Foundation. We know great schools don’t just happen. Your dedication to our Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre public schools makes the difference.

Support for PEF comes in many ways. It comes when you help at a school, participate in one of our activities, sponsor an event, follow us on social media, share our stories of success, or give a gift.

We accomplish great things together! Each and every contribution made to PEF plays an important part in our larger efforts to reach every student, at every school, every day.
