Piedmont Schools Education Foundation

The mission of The Piedmont Public Schools Education Foundation is to support both students and teachers by providing financial resources for new projects and creative approaches for existing programs, in order to prepare the student for college and career.

About Piedmont Public Schools Education Foundation

The current iteration of our Foundation was created by the generous donation of Todd Attalla in memory of his wife, Carrie Attalla, a Piedmont teacher. From this seeding Carrie Attalla Memorial Fund, and through an entire continued community effort, we have been able to grow a fund that provides more than $10,000 in teacher and school grants annually.

Your involvement and support of PPSEF help us increase the amount given to our schools every single year and allows us to support other initiatives as well - scholarships to students, supplies for the school sites - all to keep our Piedmont community one of the greatest places in the state to raise a family.

Thank you for your support! We hope to see you at an event soon! You can follow the Foundation on Twitter @ FoundationPPS and Facebook at Piedmont Public School Education Foundation.
