Dear Presidio Families,

As we all settle into the school year, it is once again time to focus on how we can ensure Presidio remains an amazing, supportive learning community with exceptional academic and enrichment opportunities. The Panther Pride Fund, our annual giving campaign, is one of the most important ways you can help support our school, you can contribute right now at This year’s campaign is off to a roaring start. Thanks to all the families who have contributed so far, the Parent, Teacher and Student Association (PTSA) has already raised $29,500 for Presidio! 

But we need your help to reach our goal. With state funding only paying for basic educational needs, your tax-deductible, annual gift fills a critical gap. Key educational needs funded directly by your Panther Pride Fund gift include:

  • Materials to enhance the core curriculum in Science, Math, Language Arts, and Social Studies
  • Electives (musical instruments, sheet music, dance/music performances, spring musical, art supplies, computer science software, foreign language instructional materials)
  • Supplies and mini-grants for all classrooms/teachers
  • Physical Education equipment, including PE t-shirts and shorts for incoming students
  • Sponsorship of student clubs
  • 8th Grade Promotion (dinner, dance, picnic)
  • Schoolwide events such as our new Math Night, Science Night and Humanities Night
  • Annual Black History Month Talent Show and Dinner
  • Homeroom games.
  • Partial support for maintaining 0’ electives, outside of the regularly scheduled school day. 

The PTSA must raise $170,000 each year to support Presidio’s academic programs, instructors and supplies. The Panther Pride Fund must raise nearly 3/4 of this amount, and is our school’s primary fundraiser. 

I invite each family to consider making a gift to the Panther Pride Fund that is right for you. It is our #1 goal for 100% of our families contribute. To meet our fundraising goal, the PTSA is asking each Presidio family to consider a gift of $500 for this year. We understand that some families cannot give that much and others are able to give more. What is important is to contribute any amount that is possible for your family. Donations are 100% tax deductible and can be broken up in monthly payments. Many families take advantage of company matching programs to increase their gift – simply ask your employer. Please contact with any questions.

You can donate by completing the donation form on the back of this letter and returning it to school or simply donate online at Every single gift, of any amount, makes a difference for our students. 

Thank you for your commitment to your children’s education and to our school. For everything you do for your children and for our wonderful school, we are all so very appreciative.
