The Foundation for Public Education

Fostering excellence in public education is The Foundation for Public Education'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, The Foundation for Public Education 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.

2016 Golf Classic

At Orange Tree Resort was a smashing success! 


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 Foundation For Public Education and the students of PV Schools with a tax-deductible donation.
