Pacific Crest School Annual Fund

The Pacific Crest School (PCS) Annual Fund is our school’s largest source of income after tuition and helps to close the $750 gap per student between tuition and the actual cost of education.

For decades, parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends have generously contributed to the PCS Annual Fund to provide essential operating funds that support all of our programs, outings, teacher salaries, classroom materials, and much more. Each donor’s participation reflects the strength of our community and a shared commitment to our children’s future.

This year we intend to raise a total of $155,000 for the PCS Annual Fund during our abbreviated 2017 campaign which runs from March 6th through April 7th. We seek 100% participation over the course of the five-week campaign, and we call upon each member of our community to participate in a fun giving challenge.

We have created different levels of giving, named to reflect the values of Pacific Crest School and the experiences that our children have.

They are:

  • Joy $10,000 and up
  • Commitment $3,500 and up
  • Confidence $2,500 and up
  • Courage $1,000 and up
  • Discovery $500 and up
  • Love up to $499

Gifts to the PCS Annual Fund at all levels make a difference in the life of each student at our school. Here are some ways in which your gift impacts students:

  • New cubbies in the middle school that students can be proud of –$14,000
  • Sending two teachers to a 4-day Montessori refresher course —$3,400

All Annual Fund donations are tax-deductible. Stock transfers, securities, and employer matches are also accepted in your gift total. Below are a few more ways you can donate.



An easy way to double or even triple your contribution is through employee matching programs. Many corporations match employee donations to our school. 



A gift of securities is accomplished by transferring stock electronically to the school's brokerage account. The value of your gift and tax deduction is the mean price of the stock on the date of transfer. Please email for stock transfer instructions.
