Our Values


We Partner with our Public Schools Because We Believe They are an Essential Part of Every Great Community. Our schools don’t have the financial resources to accomplish everything the community expects of them, so the Foundation partners with them to fill the gaps and improve the quality of education. We are a proven and trusted partner and believe our alignment with the school district makes our public schools better for all our students and families.


We are Classroom-Centered. Our focus is on students and teachers, and we ensure their voices inform our work. Through the Foundation’s Signature Programs, we offer support to our students and teachers through every grade, every day. The decisions we make are rooted in research, best practices, and are judged through the lens of long-term academic success.


We Nurture Strong Relationships and Build Community. The Foundation actively engages in discussions with educators, donors, community members, parents, and students. We listen deeply and empathetically to better understand how the Foundation can align with district goals, support creative learning, provide long-term program stability and build community support.

Park City.

Our Town is in our DNA. Park City is a uniquely adventurous community of creative, caring and successful people from all walks of life and from all around the world. The Foundation works to bring all the community has to offer, both in and outside the classroom, to benefit every teacher and student.


We are Bold and Successful. PCEF invests in forward thinking, innovative ideas in partnership with the Park City School District. The Foundation’s investment in public education is not only an investment in students’ success, but also an investment in families and in the future success of Park City.
