We are thrilled and humbled to end the school year with these successful campaigns, detailed below.  Thank you for your generous contributions, which will translate into innovative and needed academic programs benefiting every child in the district.
Thank you to the myriad of volunteers who give hundreds of hours of their time and talent to PCEF.  We simply cannot do what we do without you.  Thank you to our sponsors and in-kind donors, who enable us to invest more of every dollar we raise.

Have a wonderful summer!
Running with Ed Breaks All Records!
The 5th annual RWE was one for the record books!


Spectacular weather, 189 teams, 1,000+ runners, and most important, over $230,000 was raised for PCEF's Site Grants programs. Thanks to everyone who had a great time at our community 'Celebration of Education!'


We loved seeing the many teacher and family teams this year, and all the hilarious costumes. Incredibly, over 60 teams fundraised and brought in $118,000! We also want to thank our generous  sponsors and in-kind donors. Please keep these businesses in mind, as they are wonderful supporters of PCEF and the school district. In particular, thank you to Title Sponsor Ragnar Relay.


We have to give a huge shout out to all our volunteers, especially the folks who put on the fantastic exchange parties! Our racers love them! Thank you also to the LIA volunteers as well.


Check out the RWE Facebook page for fun photos, and parent Bari Nan Cohen's blog about race day. Check out the RWE article in the Park Record, and the RWE video from PCTV.  And save the date: RWE 2015 is May 16th! Registration opens January 1st.  

Together we've Raised the Bar     

With generous support from parents we reached our goal of raising $180,000 by June 1st.  This Fall, our elementary schools will have a high achieving specialist in each building. 

Specialists have already been hired and placed at each elementary school.  Every student will benefit!  For details on what the High Achieving Specialists will do, click here

$1 per day really does add up. This year, parents like you donated $233,000 to PCEF's Parent Appeal! 


Over 1,000 families donated to PCEF, with 591 families donating to PCEF's Parent Appeal for the first time!  Overall, 34% of PCSD families invested in our students education.  

Thank you for contributing during School Registration, Beat the Call, or Phone-a-Thon to support Park City students!

Appeal is one piece of PCEF's effort to raise over $1 million dollars to fund 60 programs across the Park City School District. 

P.S. Over $7,000 was contributed through employer matches!  Does your employer match?

Get ready to paint the town red! Save September 20th for The Red Apple Gala, generously hosted by Montage Deer Valley and presented by Zion's Bank. It's Park City's favorite fall party, with an amazing cause to celebrate! Tickets go on sale July 1. All proceeds go to PCEF's grant programs. Click here for more details.

The Event that Gets the Whole Town Talking!
