History of the Peoria Public Schools Foundation

The Peoria Public Schools Foundation is a private, independent 501(c) (3) organization.  The Peoria Public Schools Foundation was established in 1992, incorporated in 1998, and restructured in 2007.  The Peoria Public Schools Foundation raises, manages, and invests private contributions in ways that will maximize the effectiveness of the substantial public investment our taxpayers already make in our public schools.  The Foundation raises funds at our Annual Golf Outing and throughout the year at other fundraising events. Donors can also contribute gifts to our general Right Now Fund (our annual fund) through membership in our 365 program or just by directly donating to this fund.  Gifts can also be designated to specific funds and programs, including scholarships and grants to specific schools.
