Better known as Painless Fundraising, passive fundraising lets you contribute to PCA while doing your everyday shopping. These programs do not require a cash contribution. You simply save the appropriate proofs of purchase, receipts or identify yourself to a business using a PCA identification code. Each seemingly small contribution adds up in a big way to benefit a variety of PCA programs.

Shop the School Store:
PCA’s school store is located on the lower level of the Lower School in between the Swap Shop and the computer room. The volunteer run store is generally open on most school days during school hours.
