What We Do

Our Focus

We work with teachers at all levels who prepare rigorous grant requests for classroom projects they believe will benefit their students. PTEF’s grant committee then undertakes a thorough evaluation of the proposed projects, prioritizing and funding as many qualified projects as resources allow. At the end of each school year, grant recipients are required to prepare detailed evaluations of their funded projects with an emphasis on objective criteria if possible.  

Education

A solid foundation in education is key to success later in life. Your donation funds transportation, technical equipment, artists in residence, performative experiences and maritime discoveries that build a disciplinary understanding of the world unto which are children will enter. 

Community

Community is the family that goes beyond family. It is the people and places that we come in contact with each and every day. When we strengthen communities, we strengthen individuals.
It is due in great part to the partners and businesses that support the work of P.T.E.F.
Through the efforts of our board members and other volunteers, PTEF raises funds to benefit our schools through direct solicitation of community members, corporate sponsorships, and events such as our annual Soiree.
