Pacific Grove High School welcomes private individuals to donate to the school through its PTA fundraising efforts. One of its programs is the eScrip Online Mall Fundraising. A percentage of every purchase made through the ecommerce site goes directly to beneficiary schools, such as Pacific Grove High School. Merchants such as Macy’s give back 4.8% of their profits to this program.
Pacific Grove High School also raises funds through the PTA Magazine Fundraiser. This online magazine drive is facilitated by American Publishers, and offers over 850 magazines and 100 digital subscriptions. Donors need only purchase or renew their subscription and input the school’s code, and 50 percent of the sales will be donated to the school. That money will then be used to fund student activities and athletics.
