Honor a Teacher


The PBL Education Foundation offers the perfect way to pay tribute to someone who has made a difference in your child’s life or your life.  What better way to honor a teacher, administrator, staff person, pastor, scout leader, neighbor,  grandparent or anyone else who has had a positive influence on your child’s educational training either this year or in past years than to make a donation in their honor to the Education Foundation.  Your gift of $5 or more will honor the person of your choice.  They will receive an attractive card/certificate/ notifying them of your gesture.  The amount of your gift will remain confidential.

As an adult, you can probably still remember a teacher or someone else who made a difference in your school experience.  Perhaps it was someone who “turned you on to learning.”  Maybe it was someone who dramatically influenced your career choice and the success you’ve experienced in that career.  It’s never too late to thank that individual.  If the person is still living, the Foundation will attempt to notify the individual of your gift in their honor.  Memorials may be donated in a person’s honor if they are deceased.  Every attempt will be made to notify a family member of the honoree if your gift is a memorial.

Your gift will support the PBL Education Foundation’s grant program, which provides funding for teachers and students in grades K-12.  Some of the initiatives funded through the grant program include reading projects, academic enrichment, music and the arts projects, and technology upgrades.  The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so all gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible.

If you wish to honor a teacher, you may use the form posted below or pick one up at any of the offices in the PBL School District buildings.

Special Note to Parents of Current PBL Students:  This tribute is a perfect solution to your shopping dilemma at special times throughout the school year:  Christmas gift, Education Week gift, end-of-the-school year appreciation gift, or any time you feel someone in the school system has made a difference in your child’s educational experience.  Teachers and staff will be touched to know that a family has made a donation to the PBL Education Foundation in their honor.  Donations in any amount of $5 or more are acceptable.
