About PCEF

Mission Vision Values


We fund and support educator-powered initiatives that inspire all Park City students to reach their academic and lifelong potential. 



To help launch well-prepared, curiosity-driven, creative problem solvers who are ready to meet tomorrow’s challenges.



1. Partnership.
We invest in the Park City School District because excellent public schools are essential for a great community. When we partner with our schools, community nonprofits, and other groups to make our schools the best they can be, everyone benefits: our teachers, students, families, and community.

2. Classroom-Centered.
Educators and students are at the heart of everything we do, and their voices drive our work. 

3. Equitable and Inclusive.
We have a responsibility to include everyone and eliminate barriers to participation in all we do—from each program we fund to every opportunity we provide. We recognize that these barriers are the product of unexamined implicit biases and structural inequities.

4. Park City.
Our town is in our DNA. Park City is a community of people from all walks of life. We bring together their rich variety of skills, experiences, and resources to help us better support our students, families, and educators.

5. Nimble.
We anticipate and respond quickly to the ever-changing needs in our schools—allowing educators to adapt, innovate, and lead the way in Utah public education.

6. Unwavering.
Generations of educators and students have been positively impacted by our funding, expertise, and advocacy. We will continue to provide support for generations to come.
