Thank you for supporting the Pasadena Educational Foundation!

Every effort that PEF makes is motivated by the firm belief that investment in our public schools strengthens our entire community. Your gift benefits the students of our community’s public schools and, indeed, the entire community.

With your continued support, the future holds great promise for our students.

What will your gift do?

Here are some of the programs your gift will support...

My Masterpieces: Discovering Art in My Community.  Did you know that this award-winning program now engages every K-6 classroom in the district – more than 9,000 students – in a sequential arts curriculum that connects them to the unique cultural resources of Pasadena?   

The PEF Summer Enrichment Program.  This year PEF has enrolled more than 1,500 students offering a range of enrichment experiences from Intro to Kindergarten, to a high school graphic design class. Your donations helped provide financial assistance to close to 500 students from underserved communities, so they could benefit from this experience.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).  PUSD middle and high school students are shaping their future in PEF-supported robotics classes, at Pasadena High’s new computer science-focused App Academy, and through experiments with 3-D printers throughout the district. 

Teacher Grants.  Sometimes new science equipment, a classroom garden or a field trip can make the difference. For more than 40 years, PEF has been providing teachers with the extra resources they need to inspire their students and enrich learning.
