P.E.F. hosts two annual fund raising events: “I Love Paris” and the “J.T. Davis Memorial Golf Tournament.” We are in the process of raising funds through a “No Hassle” fund raiser for I Love Paris. If you would like to donate to that fund raiser, please click the donate button. The J.T. Davis Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, October 16, 2021 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 monetary Teacher of the Year Awards for the selected teacher from each P.I.S.D. campus.
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.
