Annual Fund Donations
December 5, 2019
Dear Marshall Families,
Today we are kicking off Marshall Fundamental's year-end, annual direct-ask campaign. The money we raise through the Annual Fund helps support Marshall to provide additional support to the public school funding.
While public school is free education, the current funding does not meet the standard our community desires for our children. If every family is able to donate whatever they feel is possible we can continue to offer Marshall’s world class education for all our students at a public school price.
Just a few weeks ago our Marshall community showed great strength in its advocacy and championing of Marshall to our school district officials. I am humbled and awed by the love and dedication given to supporting our students and school. Let’s continue our momentum of advocacy and building the best school choice for all students in the Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre communities by donating to our school.
Previously, through our money we raised Marshall has been able to provide the following:
- High-quality umbrellas and tables for shelter in the quad
- Permanently installed LCD projectors in all classrooms
- Improvements to the track and field
- Updates and modernization of our campus security system
Through this effort so far in 2019, the Marshall community has raised over $17,000 in annual funds to support our school. We would like to build on this amount at the close of the calendar year to enable us to make more needed upgrades to our school. To reach this goal we are asking each family to make a donation to the Annual Fund. This is a community effort, and your participation at any amount is important.
You can make a donation online at
or leave a check in the school office. Checks should be written to "Pasadena Educational Foundation" and write "Marshall Fundamental" on the Notes line. All donations are tax-deductible, and we hope you will scale your giving appropriately to support our students and teachers. Please email any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for considering this donation and for your ongoing generosity.
I am thankful and honored to be blessed to serve as your principal.
Together we are Marshall Strong.
Dr. Mark Anderson
