Ways to Give

Give $180 to Beat the Call

GIVE $180 TO BEAT THE CALL

July 1 - September 16

September 12 - 23 → PCHS DATES!

WHY GIVE $180 TO BEAT THE CALL?

 

PCEF asks for $180* per child because it's just $1 per school day! 

That's less than a cup of coffee each morning... In fact, there is not much you can buy for a dollar these days.

There is no better deal on earth: a single dollar per school day = infinite impact on your child's future.

Give before September 16*, 2022** and:

  1. We won't call you during our Phone-a-thon...
  2. You'll help your school win big time cash from the UPS Stores Park City...
  3. You boost your child's chance to win a party for their class!
     

You can make it even easier by setting up monthly donations:

  • 1 child = $15/month = $180 per year
  • 2 children = $30/month = $360 per year
  • 3 children = $45/month = $540 per year


*NEW FOR PCHS in 2022 →
☎  BEAT THE CALL ☎  PCHS IS SEPTEMBER 12 - 23RD!

  • PCHS families who donate from July 1st through September 23rd will be in an opportunity drawing for a VIP PARKING SPOT for their student...
  • AND... parents of seniors who donate before September 23rd will be entered to win 6 VIP seats at graduation! 

SCHOLAR CIRCLE CREATES A "LATTE" IMPACT

Scholar Circle is a community of families, businesses, and community members who want to make an immediate and lasting impact on our children's education.
