In this year of meaningful change at PHS, including the arrival of a new Head of School, the opening of the Maple Street building, and the opening of the lower school play yard, PHS is hosting a community event in place of the Auction/Spring Fling.
After years of hosting fundraising auctions at PHS, we will instead host a free party, the Spring Wonder Bash, on Saturday, March 25, 2017 for all the adults in our community—many of whom have lifted this school onto their collective, philanthropic shoulders and carried it toward great things. The Development Office is throwing this party to celebrate the spirit of giving and community service embodied by so many throughout the years.
So, you might then ask yourself, “How will they raise the $80K - $100K raised each year by Auction?” We wondered about that too, and what we’ve come up with will build on the spirit of kindness and desire to “give back” that has always characterized philanthropy at Presidio Hill School.
This year, we are asking all community members to make a gift or pledge to the PHS Annual Fund that represents an amount you would normally give to both the Annual Fund and the Auction. Because donations to both programs cover items in the School’s annual budget (such as tuition assistance, professional development for faculty, books and materials for the classroom), a joint gift will allow us to use these dollars to offset expenses in those critical areas of this year’s budget. Please make your contribution before December 31st, 2016.
