How to Give

 
The new CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act is designed to help you, businesses, and nonprofits facing economic hardship during the coronavirus pandemic.
 
One provision of the CARES Act that may affect you and your charitable goals is a new tax incentive that allows taxpayers who take the standard deduction to make up to $300 of charitable contributions to qualified charities this year. While this may seem like a small amount, collectively these gifts could make a huge impact to help the school through this difficult time.
 
For those who itemize their deductions, the new law allows for cash contributions to be deducted up to 100% of your adjusted gross income for the 2020 calendar year. The limitation on deductions for cash contributions by corporations has also been temporarily increased, from 10 percent of taxable income to 25 percent.

 

Thank you for supporting PCS!  Because of your support, PCS students are able to: 

  • Celebrate individuality and diversity within a community of shared values
  • Build strong relationships with friends, teachers, coaches, and mentors
  • Learn leadership and service in a variety of settings - in the classroom, on the playing field, and on the stage, to name a few
  • Develop independent, logical, and disciplined thinking, supported by a Christ-centered worldview

Every family should have the opportunity to send their children to PCS. Thanks to your gifts, we are able to provide financial aid to families who want their children to receive attention, love, and guidance from teachers who care about growing each student's spiritual character as well as their intellect.  Your gift will impact a student’s mind, body, soul, and spirit.  

Give to the PCS Annual Fund

Your gift to the PCS Annual Fund helps to bridge the gap that tuition alone does not cover.  The Annual Fund supports school operations and financial aid, and thus blesses every single PCS student - from preschool to high school.  Specific areas the Annual Fund benefits include:
  • Student Financial Aid
  • Facility improvements
  • Curriculum implementation
  • Technology enhancement
  • Staff training
