The Jackson Annual Fund raises money throughout the year to support initiatives that are not funded in the existing budget such as specialized equipment, after-school programs, the garden, field trips, and more. Whatever amount you can give, know that your donation signifies that you are part of the Jackson community.  If we all do our part, this community will ensure that Jackson Magnet remains a wonderful place to send our kids every day.

Donations can be made by cash, check or credit card and dropped off at the school office.   Please make checks payable to Pasadena Educational Foundation ( Tax ID number 23-7149451) and write “Jackson Annual Fund” in the memo line. The Pasadena Education Foundation is an accredited non-profit that processes donations for the Jackson Annual Fund and other local schools. Donations can also be made online at:

Thank you for supporting Jackson. Together, we are making a difference!
