Why Give?

  1. Your donation improves the quality of education that each student receives and helps prepare the next generation of PCD alumni. The Annual Fund is applied across the budget to buy computers and microscopes, athletic equipment, art supplies, and musical instruments. It helps maintain our 30+ acre facility, and it supports professional development for our teachers.
  2. Tuition and fees do not cover the true cost of a PCD education. Annual giving provides essential funds to cover the expenses associated with preparing our next generation of leaders.
  3. Contributions are tax-deductible. Your donation helps PCD and can also reduce your personal tax liability.
  4. Your gift will grow as it inspires others to give—whether individuals like you who want to make a difference, alumni who appreciate the gift that was given to them, or corporations and foundations, who consider an institution's giving history when awarding grants.
