A Tribute That Goes Beyond a Lifetime
The Board of Directors of the PBL Education Foundation is committed to using the donations given in honor of loved ones to help provide the best education possible for the students in the PBL Unit #10 School District.
Many families have chosen to designate the Foundation as a memorial recipient when a family member has passed away. As Pat Milchuck explained, “I have grandchildren going through PBL High School. By designating that memorials be given to the Education Foundation, the funds are being passed on to another generation.”
Individuals have also chosen to donate as an honorarium to a living person or persons. The Foundation has received gifts in honor of retirements and wedding anniversaries. Jill Manley, 4th grade Special Education teacher at PBL’s Eastlawn Elementary School, chose to honor her sisters: “My sisters are both teachers—Diane is an English teacher in Sonoma, CA, and Cindy is a speech therapist in Parma, MI. We decided to forego buying Christmas presents for each other and donate the money to a favorite charity. The Education Foundation seemed like the logical choice since we’re all involved in the field of education.”
