Pinewood thrives on the spirit and generosity of our community. Each year, tremendous support of the Annual Fund First is a tangible demonstration of that spirit. It ensures and encourages innovative teaching and learning that allow Pinewood students to flourish everyday.

Pinewood depends on the generous support of our entire community - parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, business partners, and friends - to ensure our unique educational environment where students develop academic stamina, intellectual maturity, self-esteem, and a high standard of behavior.

Your contribution can be designated to any of the following areas and will be used entirely in the year it is given.

Unrestricted/Where need is greatest

Unrestricted contributions allow us to support a broad range of school programs and activities. Donations will be directed where funds are needed the most.


This fund supports the use of technology by our teachers on all three campuses to enhance the educational experience for our students.

Faculty Enhancement

The Faculty Enhancement Fund offers teachers the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and hone their expertise by attending conferences, workshops, and seminars.


Since 1993, Pinewood School has partnered with the East Palo Alto After-School Tennis and Tutorial program (EPATT), an organization that strives to enrich the academic, athletic, and social skills of its participants. All proceeds from this fund provide scholarships to under-resourced students who meet Pinewood’s admission criteria and who are recommended to Pinewood by the EPATT program.

Alumni Fund

All donations to the Alumni Fund are directed to our Upper Campus programs, initiatives, and facilities. Loyal alumni support enhances our ability to apply for additional foundation funding, and makes our spirit of community even richer.
