Benefit Events

Community-wide events provide an opportunity for all three campuses to come together as one and celebrate the spirit of Pinewood while raising funds for the school. Our families support these events through sponsorships, securing corporate sponsorships, donating items, and volunteering to organize the events. Community events raise more than just funds--they raise the spirits of our community.

Benefit Auction

Pinewood hosts an auction event every other spring to benefit various initiatives that directly impact our students. It is a fun night of dining, dancing, and supporting the future of the school through silent and live auctions, raffles, and more!

This year, the 2021 Benefit Auction will be held on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View*--mark your calendars!

More information regarding the upcoming event will be posted here throughout the year.

*Pending Santa Clara County health and safety guidelines, this event may be held virtually.

Annual Fund First Recognition Events

Pinewood hosts three events through the year to thank and recognize donors at different giving levels:

Annual Fund First Community Appreciation Event

The school hosts an Appreciation Event for members of our community who support the Annual Fund First with a gift of any amount. This is a casual event typically held in spring of the same school year.

President Circle Reception

Donors at the President’s Circle levels of $2,500 and above are invited to the President's Circle Reception in the fall of the following year, hosted by the Development Office and school President to thank them for their generosity. Every year, we welcome 200 families to this appreciation event.

Ad Astra Society Reception

In addition to the President’s Circle Reception, donors at the Ad Astra Society levels of $10,000 and above are invited to the Ad Astra Society Reception in the fall of the following year. This intimate event hosted by the school President and Board of Directors is an opportunity for Pinewood to thank these donors for their generosity. We hope to welcome 40 families to the 2021 inaugural event.
