Nearly 500 Families Forgot Their Gift to PCEF This Fall! You Can Still Give Now OR During Live PC Give PC!
Ooops - we forgot to send flyers home for Beat the Call, AND you couldn't give at School Registration. Now PCEF is short $40,000 from our Give $180 and Beat the Call parent appeal!

We can't sustain the 100 programs we fund in our schools, such as elementary art and coding, makerspaces, or One Book One Community, without everyone's support.

500 families who gave last year haven't given yet this year . Please consider giving your yearly gift to PCEF now.

You don't have to wait until November 9th - click here to give to PCEF now!

Click here to see families who have already given through 10/5! Thank you!
