Celebrate Our Schools & Community With Us
The Pasadena Educational Foundation hosts a variety of community events throughout the year. Whether we are celebrating our schools, introducing inspirational speakers, honoring our community leaders, showcasing our student’s talents and accomplishments, or hosting a benefit rock concert, we are constantly finding new ways to involve our community in supporting our public schools.
You can also find us participating in community and PUSD events such as the First Choice Festival, College Opportunities Fair, Summer Opportunities Fair, Levitt Pavilion Concerts, CicLAvia, and many more.
If you see us at an event, please stop by and say hello! We would love to meet you.
