Your School

The Annual Fund

Supporting Today’s PBS

Today’s giving benefits every student, every day.

The Annual Fund, our most critical fundraising initiative, ensures that we are able to provide an exceptional experience to every lifelong learner at PBS. School-wide participation in this effort is a testament to our core value of "Community" and demonstrates our collective commitment to support our students, our faculty and staff, and each other.


Please watch this video of Co-chairs Miriam Breeding, Alex Albert, and Head of School Scott Erickson as they speak about the importance of your participation in this year's Annual Fund!

Annual Fund FAQs

The Annual Fund supports nearly every aspect of the PBS experience, providing immediate resources that enable us to:

  • Attract and retain the best faculty
  • Develop the academic, artist, and creator in every student
  • Incorporate innovative technologies in the classroom
  • Pursue exciting learning opportunities with agility
  • Remain flexible and prepared to meet the unexpected
  • In line with the traditional independent school model, tuition revenue does not cover the full cost of a PBS education. Rather than raise tuition across the board, we look to the generosity of our school community to help close the gap.

Gift allocation and Giving Levels

Contributions to the Annual Fund are allocated to the following philanthropic priorities:

  • Unrestricted

Goals for 2023–2024

  • 100% participation from families. We hope that the Annual Fund can be a gift from the entire PBS community to our students. We ask that each current family consider a donation that is meaningful to them and that places PBS among their top philanthropic priorities for the year.
  • Raise $1.2 million. Each year we strive to raise over $1 million dollars during our Annual Fund. It supports PBS in recruiting and maintaining our incredible faculty and staff, pays for supplies, and is a vital resource for our school.
  • Secure gift commitments by early Fall. The money we raise this year is spent this year, please make your gift or pledge early.

Successfully achieving these goals will provide the necessary resources to ensure that this school year is filled with learning, growing, and playing for each and every one.

We are so grateful to all those who have made PBS a top philanthropic priority with a gift to this year's Annual Fund. Please consider joining this generous group as we strive for 100% participation.


We are 85% to our goal and would also like to thank our parent community for reaching 92% participation! 💙
