Why give to the PPS Foundation?


Quality education for Peoria’s children is not just a school issue but an issue for the entire community. Private gifts from caring people can make an amazing difference in the lives of young people and in the future prosperity of our city. School foundations are essential to quality education in America today.

Your gift to the Peoria Public Schools Foundation strengthens opportunities for our students today. Include support for public education in your annual giving; include support for public education in your will. Preparing young people for successful lives is one of the greatest contributions you can make.

You may choose to support a particular school or simply donate to our 365 annual giving program, the Right Now Fund, or one of our other programs. Either way, the Peoria Public Schools Foundation pledges to apply your donation directly to the education of our students.
