At Marin Primary & Middle School, we feel grounded and known, and that solid foundation sets us on a courageous learning journey. We rely on the generous support of committed volunteers and donors to advance our mission of instilling a lifelong passion for learning within a connected, authentic, joyous atmosphere. Through active communication and community building, the Development Office continually seeks ways for alumni, parents, and friends to connect and collaborate in support of the MP&MS mission.

We welcome all levels of participation and philanthropy and are grateful for the opportunity to partner with you. Finding meaningful ways for our families and friends to become involved is at the heart of our work. We are located in the front office and invite you to stop by and say hello or contact us with any questions!

Meet the Development Team

Ledlie Pastor’s depth of experience and capacity for fostering strong relationships are the heart of our Development Office.  Serving in a range of development roles at The Taft School in Watertown, CT and the Community School of Naples in Naples, FL, Ledlie has managed highly successful annual fund appeals, special events, alumni outreach, and more. Her sophisticated skill set, keen understanding of philanthropic giving, and capacity to make a meaningful impact on our capital campaign in the coming years are just some of the many ways she is already a wonderful fit for our team. Born and raised in Connecticut, Ledlie’s passion for philanthropy grew out of her family’s deep commitment to giving back—their regular involvement in local educational and charitable causes set the stage for her natural affinity for this work. The early foundation she received from her parents about the importance of philanthropy has served as an anchor for Ledlie, both personally and professionally. Ledlie and her husband, Ben, relocated to Marin last year with their daughters (Lilly, third grade; Addie, first) and are thrilled to be settled in the area.

Trisha Fontan was born and raised in Marin County. As a fifth generation native, she comes from a family who was always active in local education and non profit organizations. Trisha entered the nonprofit sector because she felt it would provide her an opportunity to make a difference in the local community she knows and loves. With a degree in Sustainable Community Development and a familiarity with the landscape and culture of Marin County, Trisha spent over four years in development at Audubon Canyon Ranch. Having served in a range of development roles, Trisha has a demonstrated capacity for being flexible, staying organized, and multitasking, all while remaining enthusiastic and energetic. Trisha’s grandmother was a teacher at the Larkspur-Corte Madera School, which was located right here at 20 Magnolia Avenue. With a deep appreciation for small schools that promote community, Trisha and her partner Corio are thrilled to have their daughter, Maddie (age 3), in the Seashore.
