Puma Fund

As a graduate, I benefit everyday from my experience at UPrep. As a current parent, I am privileged to see this inclusive community in action once again. The Puma Fund supports the faculty’s creativity in connecting with each and every student, resulting in a more dynamic curriculum and ultimately a higher level of learning.

Each fall, our entire UPrep community comes together to support our Puma Fund campaign in an inspiring eight-week effort. Whether your child participates in one of our award-winning music ensembles or in our expanded computer science curriculum, the Puma Fund benefits every student and every teacher at our school. This has been an amazing year for the Puma Fund already and we have raised $815,551 and achieved 84% parent participation. These are both new records for our community.

Puma Fund Match

We are grateful to several generous UPrep families for providing a Puma Fund match opportunity! This year, the first 150 gifts of $1,250 or more were matched with an additional $1,250 providing an extra incentive for families to pledge early and support this important fund.

Giving Levels - NEW!

We are so excited to introduce our new giving levels! Gifts of all sizes are essential to the success of our fundraising efforts throughout the year. We hope each donor will participate at a level that is meaningful to them. Levels are based on total annual giving.

We also have a Donor Thank You Party in spring of 2018 for those who make a combined annual contribution of $2,500 or more.
