A $3M endowment will ensure that PENCIL is always connecting the community to our schools and students.

Your gift ensures we can always provide critically needed resources to MNPS through our programs and PENCIL Partnerships, such as:

  • Experiential learning opportunities for high school students to provide exposure to in-demand career paths
  • School supplies so every student and teacher has the basic tools they need
  • Caring adult mentors to encourage and tutor young people who need extra reading or math support
  • Celebration opportunities to acknowledge students and teachers

Invest to ensure Metro Nashville students have equitable resources and opportunities for years to come:

You may make a one-time gift now that will immediately begin earning income for PENCIL, or a planned gift. To discuss planned giving options, please contact Christiane Buggs, President & CEO, CBuggs@PENCIL615.org. We are happy to work with you as you contemplate this commitment.
