In 2009 the Pasco Education Foundation partnered with the Edwin Markham Elementary PTO to install a $30,000 playground structure. In 2010 PEF also helped them fund a library improvement project and continues to manage a Rural Education Endowment fund.
A $7,000 Pasco High School Mariachi Instrument grant was awarded in 2010. Much of this funding was made possible through a successful grant application to the Three Rivers Community Foundation.
The Pasco Education Foundation was honored to receive the Katie Hales Memorial Scholarship Endowment which will provide scholarships to young women who are the first in their family to seek a college education. Thank you to the Hales family for their generosity!
PEF continues to encourage new donors or new groups of donors to provide $1000 scholarships for outstanding high school graduates in the Pasco community. 2022 Scholarship applications are available now! Contact your High School Career Counseling Office for more information.
