The PEF, established in 1990, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and has awarded more
than $390,000 in support of students, staff, and district initiatives throughout
Portage Schools. The PEF has assisted hundreds of students and faculty with
grants covering a variety of costs not typically covered by District or
individual school budgets.
Mission of the Foundation is to develop, provide, and enhance the
educational opportunities for the largest number of students, staff, and
community members possible and allocate funds where they provide the
greatest benefit. The Foundation strives to provide funding to those areas
of the school district that would not otherwise receive district funding.
