Welcome to the PPEF

Thank you for visiting the Portsmouth Public Education Foundation’s (PPEF) website! We hope that you will find it informative and useful.

PPEF is a young and growing organization. PPEF was founded in 2001 by  forward and visionary thinkers in our community. Our mission revolves around furthering the educational experiences of our students by providing programs and opportunities not offered in the standard curriculum.

I encourage you to view our website, learn more about who we are, what we do, and our vision for our youth. Your support or involvement in our efforts are essential to our success! The education of our youth should be a team effort involving the school department and the community.

Our youth are the future of our community. Their preparation is a task in which we are all incumbent to participate.

Again, thank you for your interest in PPEF.

Marilyn Brockway
President, Board of Directors
