Donating & Underwriting

Did you realize that of our three parent events, our annual Spring Fair is by far our largest and best opportunity to build and strengthen ties to local surrounding communities? Our Fair has grown throughout the years and now typically draws from 1,500 - 2,000 people, yet has managed to retain a spirit of camaraderie and intimacy that Fairgoers and volunteers alike both cherish and really enjoy. But larger crowds have lead to higher costs: Fair expenses typically average around $15,000!

While "friend-raising" is the primary aim, the Spring Fair is also a fund-raiser and reducing expenses means there'll be more funds available to benefit the students of Peninsula School. To that end, we are asking if your family could help underwrite this year's expenses.

Every donation will help!

You can download a donation form that makes it easy to help: you may charge a donation, or pay with cash or by check. Kathy Koo will provide receipts for tax purposes. Simply complete the form (forms are also available in the office) and drop it in the "Spring Fair" box in the office, hand it to us at school, or mail it to :

Peninsula School - Spring Fair
920 Peninsula Way
Menlo Park, CA 94025

The great food, crafts, and entertainment and the strength of our collective commitment to the Spring Fair is what makes this event successful year after year. Thanks for considering being an underwriter for the Fair!
