PiE Leadership Circle

Leadership Circle honors families who show extraordinary commitment to supporting our schools financially by giving $3,000 or more during the school year. Families may qualify for Leadership Circle through an outright gift, by more than one gift during the school year (with all gifts totaling $3,000 or more) or through an outright gift matched by a corporate matching gift (with a combined total of $3,000 or more).

Unless you request that your gift(s) be anonymous, we will recognize four levels of outstanding commitment to our schools:

Scholars ($25,000 and up)

  • Special mention in the annual PiE Report to the Community at the $25,000 and above level
  • Invitation to Leadership Circle recognition events
  • Invitation to special group event with the PAUSD superintendent

Every Leadership Circle gift makes a profound difference for our schools. Please consider if your family can contribute at this level, and give as generously as you are able.

Donations to PiE are fully tax deductible as allowed by law and no goods or services are received by the donor in return for their gift. Donations are distributed on a per-pupil basis and not allocated to a specific student.
