Piedmont Educational Foundation
The Piedmont Educational Foundation (PEF) was founded in 1975 by a group of dedicated and visionary community members who wanted to ensure the quality of our public schools. Their mission is to promote academic excellence, champion innovation and provide sustained financial support to our public schools.
As a community based public school support organization, PEF supports educational excellence through a variety of grants programs. PEF actively seeks donations in support of our schools via the Foundation Fund, Endowment Fund, and Partners in Education Program. In addition, Dress Best For Less makes a substantial donation each year to PEF and is an integral part of PEF funding. PEF semi-annually publishes The Patron which contains information about the schools, provides opportunities for the community to make donations and describes how PEF fundraising dollars are spent. They also publish the School Directory as a service to our school families and community.
PEF has been a guardian of the academic excellence we have come to expect from our public schools. Your support of the Piedmont Education Foundation helps both current as well as future generations attain the gift of an exemplary public school education.
