Making Your Gift to Presidio Hill School

There are many ways to make a gift to Presidio Hill School. This page will help you determine which option is right for you. All gifts to Presidio Hill not only directly benefit our students, faculty, and staff, but are also tax-deductible!

Contributions to any given fund, i.e. Annual Fund, must be made corresponding to the school's fiscal year, between July 1 and June 30. Though pledges may be made at any point during the fund year, only cash contributions ("cash in hand") will count when the fund closes on June 30.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Matching gifts can double or even triple the size of your gift, and they count toward your total giving.

Before the first students crossed our threshold in 1918, our founders Flora Arnstein and Helen Salz committed Presidio Hill School to becoming an environment that served the developmental needs of children, a place where teachers called forth a child’s capacity to imagine, inquire and care. In short, they created a place where children would become creative independent thinkers able to adapt to an ever-changing world.

Over 100 years later, and thanks to the ongoing support of current families, friends, alumni and grandparents, Presidio Hill continues to hold fast to its founding principles.
