You Can Help

PREF is a 501(c)3 volunteer, non-profit organization that supports education excellence at Park Ridge High School (grades 7-12) by encouraging teachers and students to apply for funding of projects, programs or tools that enrich the learning experience. PREF is endowed through individual and family donations, corporate contributions and community fundraising events. All donations are tax deductible

There are a number of ways you can contribute to education excellence at Park Ridge High School through PREF:

On the individual/family level . . .

  • To make a personal donation in your family name or in memory of someone special, fill out the donation form, attach it to your check and send to PREF, P.O. Box 187, Park Ridge, NJ 07656. 
  • We qualify under most company Matching Gift programs. Ask your employer. We also qualify under United Way’s “Donors Choice” option. 
  • You can also help without making a donation. With a new or existing TD Bank account (any branch, any type of account, business or personal), simply fill out the TD Bank Affinity Account Form, bring it into your local branch and ask to be connected to the “PREF Affinity plan.” Once a year, TD Bank will combine the average daily balance of all accounts linked to PREF AFFINITY and donates an equivalent percentage to PREF. All details of your account remain completely confidential and your account donates nothing.

 

Corporations and businesses can also support PREF through the above options.

In addition, PREF works hard to give supporters a high return on their investment through unique funding and sponsorship opportunities! Please use the contact form for more information.
