PEF’s greatest contributions are evident in the relationships built between schools and the community. These relationships leave an enduring legacy that will forever benefit the lives of our students.
The popular “Pasadena Unified Principal for a Day” program, for instance, brings a diverse group of business and community leaders into the schools to see and experience the endeavors, challenges, and accomplishments of PUSD’s students and teachers. By visiting classrooms, meeting students and teachers, and working alongside principals, Principal for a Day participants help to foster a greater understanding of the learning and leadership that takes place in Pasadena’s public schools.
The Pasadena Educational Foundation is dedicated to supporting the needs of all our public school students, not just for today, but for another 40 years and beyond.
Unrestricted contributions enable the Foundation to provide essential resources and innovative programs that reach every student in the Pasadena Unified School District. With the help of donations from our supporters, PEF continues to make strides in ensuring that every PUSD student receives an excellent education.
On behalf of the PEF staff, board, and, most importantly, the PUSD teachers and students whom we serve, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our donors for believing in our mission.
