Partners for Education

The Annual PEF Partners for Education program began in 2012 as part of PEF’s 30th Anniversary Celebration. Our partners that first year included Petaluma Market, Clover Sonoma,and Wells Fargo. In 2013, we have added a new partner, Petaluma Health Care District, to the program. We are proud to celebrate all of our annual Partners for Education who through their financial commitment to PEF positively impact our local teachers and students every day of the year!

Benefits for Your Business and Your Community

The benefits of securing a financial partnership at this level provide your company with the opportunity to showcase your brand to your target market as well as tap into the audience of PEF supporters. Through prominent logo placement on promotional materials, highlighted at all PEF community sponsored events (The BASH, PEF Scholarship Reception, etc.) and inclusion in various customized programs, you will be in direct contact with current and potential clients, as well as build business and community awareness about your organization’s commitment to supporting local education.

The annual program carries the same sponsorship cash value of $30,000 and provides a template of benefits which can vary, enabling us to address all your individual business needs. The PEF Partner for Education agreement is valid for one year (12 months) beginning on July 1 – June 30.

Please contact Executive Director, Maureen Highland for further information or to set-up a customized presentation for your business.
