      Where is
  Reggio Emilia?

Not just an educational philosophy, Reggio Emilia is also a place.

Located in northern Italy, it is where Loris Malaguzzi and a group of parents interested in an alternative method of education founded their new teaching philosophy.

Today, schools in Reggio-Emilia carry on Malaguzzi's efforts to provide children with an education that nurtures their bodies, minds, and spirits.

For more information on Reggio Emilia, the place and the philosophy, visit the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance.



Ways to Give

We welcome contributions in a variety of forms. If you have questions about how to make a gift, or want more information, please contact us. As a nonprofit organization with 501(c)3 status, all outright gifts of cash or stock are tax deductible.

Annual Giving
The Annual Fund supports the school's operating budget and makes it possible for children of all economic circumstances to attend Peregrine School. These gifts can be used where they are most urgently needed, most often in supporting faculty and staff salaries, benefits, and professional development. After tuition and endowment income, Annual Fund contributions represent our single largest source of yearly revenue.

Capital and Endowment Giving
A capital or endowment campaign consists of single, multi year, or planned (estate) gifts given in addition to Annual Giving and designated to support specific programs and projects identified by the Board of Directors and our Executive Committee. These might include significant school expansions or facility improvements or increasing the endowment, for example. For more information on endowment and estate giving please contact us.

We appreciate any contributions of cash, check, or money order. Thank you for sending your donation to:
The Peregine School
2907 Portage Bay West
Davis CA 95616

Stocks/Appreciated Securities
Making a stock gift helps the donor avoid applicable capital-gains taxes. We can easily arrange the transfer of stock electronically to the school's brokerage account. Please contact our school administrator for making a gift of stock.

Matching Gifts
Many companies match the philanthropic contributions of their employees on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis. Matching gift forms are usually available from your company's personnel office. Simply complete your portion of the form and mail it along with your gift.

Planned Gifts and Bequests
Planned gifts and bequests can help your retirement plans, maximize your estate for the benefit of your heirs, and help provide income to Peregrine School for future generations. Please contact the school administrator for more information.

Items given to the School (e.g., a used computer, artwork, furniture) are called "gifts-in-kind." They can qualify as deductions on a donor's taxes but must be valued by the donor him/herself or by a qualified appraiser. Please contact our school administrator for gift-in-kind donations.
