PCEF Prepares for Return to School with $250,000 in Classroom Grants
To ensure the programs your kids love are here this fall, PCEF funded $250,000 in Classroom Grants! We can do this thanks to your contributions - every gift counts!
Give $180 to Beat the Call
The McKain Family Was the First to Give This School Year!
"Suddenly having no school really forced us into evaluating and truly understanding the value of school in our family and the larger community. We need our schools desperately! And right now the only way to support our schools is through donations. Our family chose the monthly donation to PCEF in support of our schools for now and the long term. We are so grateful to have such a wonderful organization in our community already doing the work of supporting schools" - Maile McKain
Why do we ask for $180 per child? It's just $1/school day! For less than a cup of coffee each day, you can change the equation for every child in the Park City School District.
Give before September 25th and you'll Beat the Call! We won't call you during our Phone-a-thon.
Thanks to YOU, we responded to immediate student and teacher needs last spring, and we stand ready to respond again. Your contributions also provide over $1,500,000 in programs your child loves!

Remote Teaching Lessons Learned from Summer School
"Your grant allowed students to continue to learn and practice the skills taught throughout the school year. Students enjoyed the distant learning every day! I heard many times, 'Thank you, and I miss you!' Thank you for the help that continued to build the relationships that mean so much to all of us!" - Angie Dufner, teacher

Todd Klarich, Community Education Director, reflects on the many firsts and lessons learned over the summer.
Red Apple Reimagined
The Red Apple Gala, generously hosted by Montage Deer Valley and presented by Zions Bank, is Park City's favorite fall party, with an amazing cause to celebrate!

The original plan was to celebrate on September 26th. With the current climate, we knew Park City’s favorite fall party couldn’t go on in typical fashion.

But unprecedented challenges = urgent need. Our students and schools need your support more than ever.

So we’re moving outside. Making the event smaller - 50 couples only. Keeping it simple. There’s no auctioneer, no big auction, no ‘raising the paddle.’ 

We'll still have that awesome Montage Deer Valley hospitality and great entertainment by Ryan Innes.

And, we know everyone's comfort level is different - if you aren't comfortable attending, you can simply make a donation. Thank you!
Feeling inspired?

Please help us change the equation for every student by giving to PCEF, here.
