The Annual Fund is the most important philanthropic priority of our school, and it offers donors the flexibility to direct their gifts to the budgeted need they choose to support. This means that your generosity assists Pegasus in developing the great programs, great people, and great places that are most important to your family.
The Annual Fund kicks off each year at Back to School Night, and we request that every Pegasus family make a tax-deductible contribution.
In the Spring, volunteers from The Pegasus School community host a fabulous fundraising Gala, with the support of The Advancement Office. All school families are encouraged to participate, be it through helping secure sponsorships or auction donations, as well as attending the event.
Our Legacy of Excellence endowment means that this vibrant academic community is grounded in a solid foundation. Although endowment principal is untouched, a percentage of its investment return supports three of our critical funds: Vision, FIT and Bright Stars.
If you believe that your company may present a partnership opportunity, or if you are interested in learning more about partnership opportunities at The Pegasus School, please contact the Advancement Office.
We Appreciate You
