The Petaluma Educational Foundation is a phenomenal organization that raises a significant amount of money for all schools in the Petaluma area. From several hundred dollars for needed supplies that have been cut at the classroom level, to $15,000 for a new technology-based innovative program, to scores of college scholarships for high school seniors, PEF does it all. It is also impressive to see that the PEF Board of Directors is a veritable who's-who in Petaluma - these people really care for their schools and prove it on a regular basis!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a school principal for 19 years in Petaluma, my school has benefited many, many times over the years from the generosity of PEF. Dozens of my formers students have received tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships from PEF as well!
