The spirit of generosity at PacPoint is remarkable. Caring parents, grandparents, community sponsors, and friends have invested in the mission and vision since the school’s founding in 1995. This partnership and tradition of giving enable PacPoint to continue improving and excelling each year in all aspects of private education: adding new academic curriculum, keeping pace with changes in technology, and challenging staff with professional growth opportunities.

There are four primary ways to give to Pac Point. You can help support us through:

  • Prayer
  • The Annual Fund
  • Major Fundraising Events
  • eSCRIP Program & AmazonSmile (

It’s easy to give online and every gift makes a difference in the lives of our students.

Pac Point is 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. See your personal tax-deductible or more information.

The administration and Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) group plan and organize fundraisers that are necessary to carry out the mission of our school. There are a variety of opportunities available to be involved and every member of the PacPoint community is invited to join in! Each year the School holds three major fundraisers. It takes considerable effort on the part of many individuals to help raise funds so that PacPoint can maintain its quest for excellence and private school affordability for local families. The commitment of our families, friends, local businesses and community foundations provide us the resources for today’s needs as well as ensuring our school’s success in the future.

Fall Fundraiser

Typically an “-athon”, the Fall Fundraiser is a school-wide fundraiser where student participants raise money by collecting donations or pledges for reading books, knocking down bowling pins or walking laps. In years past, the purpose of the Fall Fundraiser has been to raise funds to start a technology/media center, build playgrounds improve safety at PacPoint. The walk-a-thon had the added benefits of building awareness among students about the importance of health and physical fitness. The read-a-thon encouraged students to start out the school year with an emphasis on reading. This fundraiser involves all students, staff and parent volunteers. By meeting the school-wide fundraising goal, students typically earn “Spirit Week” – a week of special themed free dress days.

Spring Fundraiser

The spring fundraiser is by and large PacPoint’s largest fundraiser of the year. In the past, the school has held large “Gala” events that included a formal dinner, dance, dessert dash and silent/live/online auctions for adults in our community. Family participation is encouraged in attendance and volunteerism!

Fireworks Booth

As long as the City of Gilroy agrees, Pac Point will open its annual fireworks booth to sell “Safe and Sane” fireworks to the Gilroy community. Our fireworks booth is located at 8220 Monterey Ave in downtown Gilroy in the Little Johns Fine Jewelry parking lot, across the street from the Longhouse Restaurant. The booth is open daily from 9:00 am to 9:30 pm from July 1st through July 4th. We always need help staffing our booth! Stop by the school office and sign-up to sell fireworks at our school booth beginning May 1st. We offer Double HIS hours when you volunteer on the 4th.

These fundraisers are one of the many great ways to earn H.I.S. hours!

We hope that you will help us continue this legacy of generosity so we may continue to provide an outstanding Christian education program for the Gilroy community.

"I have 2 kids in Pacific Point. We have been members of the Pac Point family since 2017. We are grateful for the Christian values. All the teachers and administrators have compassionate hearts. We know our children are receiving a top-notch education in a safe and warm environment." -Nneka Chiazor "Pac Point is doing such an amazing job in keeping the kids and staff safe, following all the proper guidelines. My son is so happy to finally be back in school and make friends and learn. The teachers and staff are just wonderful. We love Ms. T. She is always showing how much she cares for our children and helps them out when they need it. We love Pac Point ." -Veronica Marquez "Pac Point has been a major blessing for our family. I changed jobs in May and we moved from LA to the Bay Area during COVID19. Needless to say, it was a significant challenge. Abigayle and Izabelle have been troopers but were already struggling at their local public school. Immediately upon enrolling at PPC, the Lord opened up in-class education and they were able to attend. In the time they've been there, they have both fallen in love with the school. I've never seen them so happy to go to class and do their homework. Their printed weekly homework schedule is a dream come true. It's never been easier for my wife and I to keep the girls on track! With Abby's ADHD she's really struggled since 1st grade. We were so proud and overjoyed to see her last report card full of A's, we almost cried! I asked Abby why she thinks that even though this school is harder, she is doing better. She said that her teacher spends more time with her and helps keep her focused. We are humbled by the experience with Pacific Point and are grateful from the bottom of our hearts." -Steven Hickman "My son is a first-grader at Pac Point . This is our second year at Pac Point and we really like the intimate, smaller class size atmosphere. Another thing that I really appreciate is that you have chapel and music class and that you do prayer and still say the Pledge of Allegiance before starting class! These are some of the things that many schools have dropped, but I think are so important. The only gripe I have is that sometimes it seems like I get too many emails throughout the week. Some are repetitive reminders & the teachers are already reminding us of the email they send, but I think over-communicating is better than under communicating, so not a big deal." -Mariah Cortez
