Our Impact

Scale of Impact

PTEF has raised nearly $400,000 over the past ten years for curriculum-based learning projects. These projects have ranged from iPads in math classes to stream restoration and laser equipment for the high school robotics program. As more teachers see how our grant projects not only increase student engagement but objectively improve student outcomes, the number of high-quality grant requests has begun to far outstrip our ability to support. If you believe as we do, that there is no greater legacy than the quality of our public schools, please consider donating to this community legacy- our future leaders and citizens.
