Piedmont Unified School District relies on the Giving Campaign, the largest annual fundraiser for Piedmont schools, to help keep our schools as one of the highest ranked public school districts in California.
Our net government funding is declining even as basic expenses continue to rise, and this year the district is facing a $4.4 million budget shortfall. Through the Giving Campaign, Piedmont Education Foundation seeks to fund at least half of the district’s deficit. We once again need your generous contribution to help maintain PUSD’s current level of services for our students.
What is at stake for our children? Most schools in California do not provide students with critical resources that help Piedmont students excel. Our children reap the benefits in many ways, including:
This year, the gap between the cost of educating a single student and the funds received from state and local taxes is $1,633. We are asking all PUSD parents to join us in filling the gap. Your donation — of any amount — will ensure that we are able to continue keeping Piedmont schools strong. Every contribution makes a difference and participation matters!
