PUSD Education Foundation is a non-profit foundation whose mission is to support the Prescott Unified School District through providing funding for innovative teaching, recognizing exemplary students and teachers, and involving our community in the passionate work of improving education for all students. We began as a true grassroots startup with some involved parents and community members who had grown tired of the educational funding crisis in Arizona. We knew our community would support our schools if we gave them an opportunity to do so. And so it began…and now it continues with exciting partnerships to bring hope to our students, true college and career readiness opportunities for our district, and expanding to hire staff and continue to develop into the Foundation we have been working to create.
How does PUSDEF benefit our schools?
The foundation supports student programs, projects and initiatives that do not receive tax-based funding. It also promotes and recognizes academic excellence by students and innovative instruction by teachers and staff.
How does PUSDEF benefit the community?
Businesses are attracted to communities with effective, strongly-supported public schools. The Foundation is a public expression of community support and builds bridges between schools and the community, and between current leaders and the leaders of tomorrow.
