The Pacifica Education Foundation (PEF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization founded to protect and advance quality education for the children of the Pacifica School District (PSD).

PEF provides funding to the Pacifica School District to support specific academic and enrichment programs across every grade level and school.
Programs are chosen based on input from parents, educators and administrators of the Pacifica School District.

PEF is working to raise sufficient funds to continue supporting these important programs in Math, Science and Reading & Language Arts as well as digital citizenship and technology competencies. While California public schools avoided additional funding cuts in 2013, Pacifica schools are still plugging holes from years of funding cuts. Please give generously during Donation Week and help us ensure our children receive the education they need to succeed for their futures.
