District & Schools Fundraising Support Services
The Pasadena Educational Foundation helps PUSD write grants for initiatives that provide parents and students with a high level of school choice and quality, family and community services, college readiness, and innovative programs. From large Federal Magnet Grants or California College & Career Pathways Grants to smaller grants to fund a ceramics artist or grow a school-community garden, the grants PEF has secured have supported arts, sports and athletics, health, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), college scholarships, teacher training, and many other programs in PUSD.
We provide fundraising and accounting support to nearly every school’s Annual Fund, enabling schools to more efficiently raise community dollars to meet immediate needs. Schools are now raising a collective total of over $700,000 in their annual funds. In the past few years a gracious donor match to our annual fundraising campaign has enabled us to give a portion of what we raise to each school’s Annual Fund. Over the past three years we have given approximately $150,000 to our schools in this way.
