It benefits 100% of our students, and that is why we request 100% participation from Pegasus families.

Based upon your area of interest, gifts may be directed to any of the following budgeted areas:

    Every gift is greatly valued and deeply appreciated!

  • When should I give to the Pegasus Annual Fund?

    Annual Fund gifts are used during the current school year. They are used for budgeted purposes and also provide flexible dollars and are used to support areas of immediate need or opportunity, as determined by school leadership.

    Your gift will make an immediate impact, and it is best to give as early in the school year as possible.
  • Why not just raise tuition?

    • A key goal of our school is to keep tuition as low as possible, to provide access to as many families as possible.
