In order to achieve excellence in education, schools need dedicated and expert faculty members and staff, along with modern and full-service facilities. As a non-profit institution, PNA continues to engage in on-going fundraising initiatives that will enable us to provide our faculty with the resources that more than meet their instructional needs. These initiatives help us provide a facilities environment that will attract and retain teachers of quality. A successful, broadbased fundraising program also provides stability for a school that is committed, not merely to expansion, but also to an ongoing growth of service. This is an exciting time for PNA.
Along with the demand for continual program improvements in many areas, however, comes the requisite need to acquire the funding that enables us to accomplish our goals. We have two fantastic opportunities for individual and corporate giving to the School during the year – the Annual Fund and the Spring Gala Auction. We have a number of different ways in which you may give, including gifts of securities, of real estate, annuities, cash, and more.
What The Future Holds
We understand that we must continue to improve; to make what is already excellent even more valuable. As our growth is realized, we will do our best to provide the tools necessary for success in teaching and learning. We want our students to be comfortable using digital technologies and multimedia resources to communicate ideas effectively and to master mathematical literacy. We also expect our students to know how to resolve conflicts, support others, collaborate sensitively, facilitate group discussions, teach, coach and counsel others; we insist that they develop open-mindedness to the values and traditions of others, to develop social and intellectual skills to navigate cross-culturally and to learn from and work with individuals from diverse cultures and religions. We require moral courage, ethical behavior, integrity, honesty, fairness and, most of all, respect. We teach compassion and expect our graduates to be empathetic and understanding. In keeping with our mission we inculcate flexibility, adaptability and a sense of courage in approaching unfamiliar situations. Successful fundraising initiatives are both ongoing and necessary in order to help us provide those tools.
We are indebted to those who have been part of our growth since the beginning, and we hope to continue to expand the number of donors and advocates for our cause. PNA has both a strong and effective Board of Directors and a talented faculty and administration. Nevertheless, we still seek improvement in a number of areas. In supporting the school, donors make a tangible expression of their dedication to PNA’s students and mission. Any gift, no matter how big or small, will assist the school in the following areas:
• Provide significant funds to address our most critical day-to-day needs;
• Generate the necessary momentum and credibility to achieve our strategic objectives and fundraising goals;
• Have a multiplying effect by attracting other donors;
• Send a message to friends and donors alike about the importance of supporting PNA. We thank you for your honest consideration of our accomplishments and our needs.
