Every Student. Every School. Every Day. DONATE!

Donate to the Pasadena Educational Foundation

Every day we are inspired by the creativity and innovation we see in our public school classrooms. With the shelter-at-home order, and PUSD’s exemplary transition to a remote-learning model, our work supporting the students and teachers of the district has taken on many different forms while our mission has remained the same.

Whether it be through addressing the immediate needs of our students during this crisis or through the arts, music, health centers, gardens, and STEM programs the Pasadena Educational Foundation supports, we know that with your support we are creating a better future for our students and for our community.


Every student deserves access to high-quality, well-funded public education.

Your support of the Pasadena Educational Foundation will ensure that all of our students have access to Pasadena Unified and PEF programs that will positively impact students during the pandemic and after they are able to return to on-campus, in-person instruction.

You can also give directly to our Covid-19 Response Fund

PEF Response Fund for immediate needs with technology support, health programs, meals distribution, and 3D printed personal protective equipment for food service workers, volunteers, and teachers.
