Annual Fund

A culture of generosity strengthens our community

Gifts to the Park Century Fund have an immediate impact on the day-to-day vibrancy of our school. We are deeply grateful for the support of our families.

What is The Park Century Fund?

In the 2022–23 school year, tuition alone accounted for 82% of Park Century revenue. It is the support and generosity of our community that allows our students to enjoy a complete, meaningful, and memorable educational experience.

The Park Century Fund supports the people and programs across the school, including:

  • The purchase of new and always-changing evidence-based curriculums
  • Park Century’s faculty and their professional development
  • Launching new programs, such as a Kindergarten offering in 2023
  • Financial aid for students who would not otherwise be able to attend Park Century
  • Enhanced technology
  • Art classes, athletics, and school events
  • Open Houses and other activities to heighten the awareness about PCS and the opportunities we offer to children

2023/24 Park Century Fund Goal

The Park Century Fund yearly goal is simple: 100% participation by every member of the PCS faculty and staff, every family, and every Trustee. Park Century Fund donors who contribute $5,000 and above are recognized as Leadership Donors to the Fund and will be honored at a special donor reception and recognized as such in the Annual Report.

Other ways to give


So quick and easy. Simply go to your Venmo account on your phone or mobile device and search for @ParkCenturySchool. Our account contains the school logo, and if it asks to verify the correct account with a phone number, use the main school number of 310-979-2184. Our Development Department will be notified of your contribution immediately.

Donor Advised Funds (DAF)

Contributions can be made from a Donor Advised Fund.  DAFs allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive a tax deduction, and make donations from the fund over time. Donors can contribute to the DAF as frequently as they like and then recommend contributions to their favorite non-profit organization.

Appreciated Securities

Donating appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares) held for at least a year and a day is a tax-advantaged way to make a gift and can be done easily. You will be entitled to a charitable deduction on the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift, and you will not incur any capital gains tax on the appreciation. 

To ensure proper recording of stock gifts, please contact the Development Office by clicking here or calling 310-979-2184 for instructions.

Planned Giving

We are grateful to all of our families, alumni and friends who remember Park Century in their estate plans. Please contact the Development Office by clicking here or calling 310-979-2184 for more information.

Corporate Matching

Many employers match gifts made by active and sometimes retired employees. Securing a matching gift is an easy way to double or even triple your gift to Park Century.  Please contact your Human Resources department to see if your company participates in a matching plan and to obtain a matching gift form. If your contribution generates a matching gift, you will receive credit for the combined amount of your gift, including the matching fund.

PCS and the community of friends and teachers have been so important and meaningful to our family. We love how the Park Century Fund focuses on the participation of the community... It's another sign of mutual support and togetherness that makes PCS so special.


How much should I contribute?

We hope that everyone in the PCS Community recognizes the school as one of their top philanthropic priorities. Gifts to Park Century range from $5 to over $50,000. We encourage our families to consider giving at the Leadership Level of $5,000 or more if they are able. 

When should I contribute?

The earlier that we receive your gift, the earlier we can put it to work for our students! We encourage all families to make their pledges by December 31st, although contributions are accepted through the end of each school year.

Is Park Century eligible for Employer Matching Gifts?

Yes! Please ask your Human Resources department about a matching gift program, or feel free to contact the Park Century Development Department and we can do the research for you. It’s often as simple as filling out a one-page form, and it can result in doubling, or sometimes tripling, your gift to PCS.

How Else Can I Help

1. As a parent, be an ambassador for Park Century! Your positive endorsement of the school and its programs to the community helps attract and retain new families and funders.

2. Get involved on campus! There are numerous volunteer opportunities which can be a fun way to meet new people and new students, while assisting with PCS initiatives. 

3. Make PCS one of your top philanthropic priorities! There are many ways to give at your capacity, and you should be proud of those contributions. Spread the word in the community and to other potential funders, including individuals or corporations. And of course, feel free to reach out to our Development Department at any time with philanthropic ideas or suggestions.

4. Encourage grandparents and alumni to get involved at PCS whether it be via monetary gifts or volunteering with the school.
