P.E.F. hosts two annual fund raising events:  “I Love Paris” which will be held in the spring and the “J.T. Davis Memorial Golf Tournament” which was held on Saturday, October 17, 2020 at the Paris Golf & Country Club.  Both of these fund raisers have been great successes because of the generous support of our community!!

Each year, scholarships are given for post-high school studies and teacher enhancement. P.E.F. also provides annual monitary Teacher of the  Year Awards for the selected teacher from each P.I.S.D. campus.

About Us

The Paris Education Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization formed in response to the desire of the Paris Independent School District Board of Trustees to increase the scholarships offered to Paris High School graduates.

Established in 1989, the foundation was created to generate financial support for the students and faculty of the Paris Independent School District.  P.E.F. is funded by investment monies from the original endowment, fund raising events and your contributions.


Because of the generosity of our donors and  successful fund raisers, P.E.F. has awarded $1,816,694 in student scholarships and $95,640 in teacher grants and Teacher of the Year Awards.
