It is a tremendous honor for PVSchools to have a partnership with an organization so committed to the success of our students. Over the years, The Foundation For Public Education has helped fund a number of programs that have directly benefited our students. I encourage you to support the PV Schools Education Foundation and the students of PVSchools with a tax-deductible donation.

We all know that the future of our community, state and country rely on the skills and abilities of children currently enrolled in our schools.

You can help us in a variety of ways to give our students every chance of success.

Fostering excellence in public education is the PV Schools Education Foundation's mission. Our dream is to see every dedicated student have access to the programs and quality education they deserve.

Since our inception in 2006, PV Schools Education Foundation has invested over $500,000 in support of the 34,000 students in the Paradise Valley School District. Programs from the arts to STEM have been funded.

Our Mission

New name, same mission!

PV Schools Education Foundation

For the past eight years, The Foundation for Public Education has been committed to addressing the gap between public school funding and student needs in PVSchools. We are excited to announce that the name of the foundation will be changing to PV Schools Education Foundation. We are in the process of implementing the name change. We will introduce a new website and other communication channels soon.  So stay tuned, we’ll share the exciting news once the new site is completed. Because of valued partners like you, we can help to ensure our students have equitable access to enriching educational experiences that make a difference. Thank you for allowing us to continue our mission to support students and educators across the district.
