Fund a Grant. Empower A Teacher.

“For me, PCEF is the first to help. We all have a lot of tools that were initially given by PCEF before the school or district budget covered them for a whole department. These tools make the classroom more alive and engaging, and help us give the big picture.” - Debra Alcox, PCHS Math Teacher

After parents, the number one influence on student success is the classroom teacher. 

PCEF was born in 1986 when a PCHS classroom teacher asked for a grant to send two of her students to a space camp at Stanford. PCEF donors have been funding educators' dreams of a better classroom experience for their students ever since.

Classroom Grants are awarded to teachers to bring innovative ideas, concepts, or practices to life, or expand past successful ideas in the classroom or school. Teachers (and administration!) get to conceptualize and then try new things - unique learning activities, innovative technology. Money is allocated to programs that focus on creativity and innovation, the whole child, and academic success. Classroom Grants requests are awarded in the spring for the following school year, and have a maximum of $45,000 per grant.

Express Grants are awarded to teachers for last minute needs and may be requested for up to $1,000. As the name implies, Express Grants have a very short turn-around and exist to fill immediate classroom needs.

Classroom Grants give teachers the support they need to try new ideas or expand successful ones they've seen in other classrooms or schools.  PCEF funding helps these ideas gain traction and thrive within a school. PCEF then often steps in to help find other funding sources over time so effective initiatives can expand and reach more students.

Every student benefits from great teachers improving their classroom!

“The most important people in schools are teachers. The rest of us are support. Because of that first-hand knowledge and expertise, teachers are in the best position to identify new ways to engage students in learning.” - Bob Edmiston, Principal, MPES  


The Classroom Grants program started in 1986. Since then, countless students and teachers have been impacted by hundreds of programs funded by PCEF donors.
