Annual Fundraising

The school relies on the generous donations of the Stevenson PACT community to support the activities of Stevenson’s progressive education program. The PACT Foundation has a philosophy of minimizing the number of fundraising requests that are made of parents, preferring to ask parents for a one-time annual, tax-deductible gift. The PACT Foundation strives for 100% participation from families. The suggested donation is a $300 tax-deductible donation per child. Donations at every level are appreciated and families are asked to give in a way that is comfortable to them. All donations have an immediate and tangible impact on all students in the school.

Donations to the PACT Foundation support:

  • All back-to-school and classroom supplies for education
  • Project-based Learning and other hands-on learning projects
  • Off-site Learning Experiences (OLEs) and on-site visits from experts to enhance the learning experience
  • Enrichment activities such as Arts Focus, garden, cooking, etc.
  • School committees such as Parent Education, STEAM, Walkathon, PACT Pals, etc.
  • School library
  • Responsive Classroom and other social emotional learning programs such as Project Cornerstone
  • Professional development for teachers, and other school curriculum support

In addition, the PACT Foundation makes every effort to cover the "incidental costs" that parents may incur during the course of the year. For these reasons, we ask for an annual, tax-deductible donation from every family. Our collective effort ensures that our school and teachers have what they need to provide a rigorous, hands-on education.

Corporate Matching:

The PACT Foundation usually qualifies for corporate matching. Matching gifts are a great way to often double or possibly even triple your own gift to the school. For a partial list of companies that offer matching, go to: Matching Link
