PiE (Partners in Education) at Juana Briones

PiE’s Challenge Grant is happening now through September 8th. Gifts and pledges may be matched dollar-for-dollar by a pool
of donations up to a total of $500,000!
Palo Alto Partners in Education (PiE) is the non-profit educational foundation devoted to raising money for all Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) schools. PiE donations provide Briones with classroom aides, art and music instruction for all grades.  Every donation makes a difference in the educational experience for each Briones student.

For the 2020-21 school year, generous donations from parents and community members have allowed PiE to provide Juana Briones with $162,176 for use on our campus. At Briones, donations to PiE help every student by:

  • Helping to fund the general classroom aides who work with kids in every regular education classroom (PiE pays for more than half of this time)
  • Funding our Spectra Art Instructor, Jennifer Sullivan, who teaches every child creativity and confidence (PiE pays for 100% of her time)

Through a grant to the district, PiE also helps support the traveling music and dance programs at Briones and all PAUSD elementary schools.

Your 2020-21 Briones PiE Representatives are Ana Eng, Kalee Whitehouse, Gabriela Segura, and Heewon Park. If you’d like to join our Briones PiE Rep Team or have any questions, please email them to briones@papie.org.

Some of the programs and roles described above are based on the prior, in-person learning model. As plans evolve during the pandemic, these programs may be offered virtually or adapted as the school year progresses.

Donations to PiE are 100% tax deductible and eligible for company matching gift programs. PiE is also a 501(c)(3) Corporation, Tax ID Number: 77-0186364
