At Pasadena Christian School, we are dedicated to providing an exemplary Christian education that nurtures young minds, fosters a love for learning, and prepares students to be the hands and heart of God wherever they go. However, the cost of delivering this high-quality Christian education extends beyond what tuition can cover. That's where the Annual Fund comes in, and we invite you to join us in making a significant impact on our school community.
What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is our yearly giving campaign that bridges the gap between what tuition covers and the full cost of a PCS education. It supports a wide range of essential areas, directly benefiting each child at our school:
- Supporting families who rely on financial assistance, including siblings and alumni discounts
- Enriching students' learning experiences by covering local and multi-day trip expenses
- Supporting faculty development and advanced training
- Maintaining our facilities with upkeep and replacing old equipment/appliances
- Providing uniforms, transportation, and equipment for athletic teams.
- Ensuring financial flexibility to meet unanticipated challenges
Why Your Support Matters:
Your contributions directly impact every student at PCS. By giving to the Annual Fund, you help us maintain excellence in education and keep tuition rates competitive. Without your support, we would have to raise tuition to a level where we might exclude talented and deserving students from our community seeking a Christian education.
Tax Benefits and Corporate Matching:
Pasadena Christian School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations to the Annual Fund are 100% tax-deductible. Additionally, many employers offer matching gift programs for their employees' contributions. Check with your employer to see if you can double your impact for PCS.
Annual Fund – It's All About Participation:
High Annual Fund participation levels help us secure grants and gifts from foundations and corporations, indicating strong community support. Parent participation is a critical indicator of our school's success.
