PCEF's Eight Signature Initiatives:

The state of Utah ranks last in the country for per-pupil funding, and 96% of Park City's state-collected education tax dollars go to other school districts.  Our schools don’t have the money they need for programs that district families have come to depend upon. 

We fund eight signature initiatives to inspire all Park City students to successfully reach their academic and lifelong potential. Within the eight initiatives are more than a hundred programs, supported annually by PCEF with a $1.3 - $1.8 million dollar contribution. These programs have an impact on every single one of the 5,000 PCSD students. 

The impacts of the pandemic means there are additional needs for our teachers and students - for both online and in-person learning.  Thanks to donors, the Park City Education Foundation funds programs to ensure Park City students thrive, regardless of present challenges.


  1. Preschool: Lower the cost of preschool, raise the odds for success.

  2. Elementary Visual Arts (EVA): Keep art in the picture.

  3. Afterschool: Quality afterschool programs (K-9th) that work for working parents.

  4. STEM: When science is hands-on, creative thinking takes off 

  5. PCCAPS: Park City Center for Advanced Professional Studies (11th & 12th) - Real companies, real projects, real experience.

  6. Bright Futures Park City: Improve the odds for Park City's first-generation college students → college coaching & support 

  7. Classroom and Express Grants: Fund a grant - empower a teacher → Classroom Grants support academic success, the whole child, and innovation. Express Grants fund immediate in-person and online learning needs.

  8. Innovation Lab: Education ideas for the future from those who know best → educator voice in education.
