Blazing the Trail of Tomorrow, Today!

As a Hillsborough County Charter School, we operate as a nonprofit – a 501(c) 3. Funding received from the State of Florida is limited and less than what traditional public schools receive.  It is necessary for fundraising to take place in order to meet our school’s annual budget and goals.  PHS works hard at sustaining its mission to offer an innovative, high quality education with rigorous educational programs, equipping our students for academic achievement and post-secondary success.  To do this, the school must generate funding on an annual basis from grants, sponsorships and fundraising efforts from students, parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty/staff, Board and community partners.

Dr. Kiran C. Patel High School kicks off our first Giving Campaign August 18th-December 1st. This is our school’s MOST IMPORTANT fundraiser!! Monies raised through this campaign will support, expand, and enhance current accelerated programs which aim to prepare students for college, careers, and post-secondary success.  We invite each student and their family to collect at least $150 in donations over a 4-week period. Our school wide goal is $67,500.
