Annual Fund Drive contributions literally close the funding gap between what PCS receives from the State and what it costs to run PCS's acclaimed program. Each year our families contribute – through voluntary, tax - deductible donations – about 15% of our budget expenses via the Annual Fund Drive (AFD). We ask families to make a donation of $3,500 or more per student each year to the AFD. While we know that a gift of this size is not possible for all families, we trust that each family will participate to the fullest extent possible. We very much appreciate gifts of all sizes, and particularly value participation in the AFD by all PCS families. We appreciate getting pledge forms as early in the school year as possible. Thank you in advance for your consideration and very valued support!
