Our Mission

The mission of the Portage Education Foundation is to help develop, provide, and enhance the educational opportunities for the largest number of students, staff, and community members possible.

For over 25 years PEF has raised funds from private sources to provide student scholarships and staff development grants, pilot innovative educational programs, and supply in-classroom teacher mini-grants. PEF has also purchased new technology hardware and software and provided funds to support this technology. This technology is then put to good use throughout the school year and during the Summer Technology Exploration Program (STEP), which PEF brings to hundreds of PPS students each summer free of charge.
