Support Our COVID-19 Emergency Reserves

The COVID-19 emergency reserves are monies set aside to help the school cover expenses arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The reserves are expected to support payroll for our dedicated faculty and staff, emergency tuition grants for families who have lost jobs or substantial income because of the pandemic, and other extraordinary measures necessary to prepare for the 2020-21 school year.
Any gifts made to the 2019-20 Annual Fund between now and June 30 will be directed to these emergency reserves. Your support will help the community stay together and the school move forward. To contribute, click on the Donate Now button.

Annual Giving

Outstanding faculty. Integrated academics. Small class sizes. Robust global travel experiences. Meaningful service learning programs. Award-winning visual and performing arts programs. Competitive sports programs. 

These many aspects of a Pacific Ridge education lead our students toward purposeful futures and the Pacific Ridge Annual Fund helps make them all possible. 

As is common in independent schools, tuition alone does not fully cover the costs associated with providing an exceptional education. The Annual Fund helps bridge the gap between tuition revenues and the true cost of our unparalleled educational experience. Because the Annual Fund is a component of our operating budget, it profoundly impacts all aspects of every students' daily experience.

The goal for the 2019-2020 Annual Fund Campaign is $850,000 with full support from our trustees, parents, faculty and staff.

Participation Matters

Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference.

Each year, our community’s collective contributions provide us with the financial flexibility to enhance our programs and enrich our student’s educational experience. Annual Giving is a critical component of our operating budget, but the impact of your donation does not end there. Annual giving covers 4% of the operating budget (80% of the gap), with the remaining funding provided by outside donors and private foundations. Before outside donors commit resources to Pacific Ridge, they want to see a fully invested community – one that believes in the school, its values and experience. Participation in the Annual Fund is an indicator of our community’s shared commitment to the success and sustainability of Pacific Ridge and sends a powerful message to other donors. Whether you give $50 or $5,000, know that your gift has an immediate and meaningful impact on each student’s daily experience.

Every dollar counts. Every gift matters. Every donor makes a difference.

2019-2020 Annual Fund gifts, pledges and payments are accepted through June 30, 2020 Cash, checks, credit cards, securities, and corporate matching gifts are all accepted.
