End-of-Year Giving

Dear PMFS Families,

The holiday season has arrived, filled with joy and busy-ness. As we search for perfect presents and make plans to visit family and friends, meanwhile navigating a deluge of never-ending demands, it is important to remember our children. I invite you to honor the students of PMFS by making a tax-deductible donation to the PMFS Annual Giving Fund during this holiday season. Funds raised by Annual Giving directly benefit every PMFS student. Your gift to the PMFS Annual Giving Fund makes a difference in the lives of our children.

It is always the right time to support PMFS students, but even more meaningful at a time of the year when we have a moment to truly appreciate our blessings and think about what is important in our lives. Our support of the Annual Giving effort helps PMFS educate the whole child and open the world to our students through experience, instruction, and exploration.

You know PMFS and understand the importance of this unique learning community. Please join other PMFS families and make a gift to the 2017-2018 Annual Giving Campaign. You can make a credit card gift online, or mail your gift to the Development Office.

Each and every gift, regardless of size, is deeply appreciated.

Happy Holidays,
Ralph Henninger, Director of Development
