The Public Education Foundation of Moore County, Inc. was incorporated in 1984 as a nonprofit organization with 501(c) (3) tax status and since its inception has contributed more than $250,000 to enhance education in Moore County. The Board of Directors consists of up to 25 members and these impassioned volunteers come from varied backgrounds and geographic locations around the county.
The mission of the Public Education Foundation is to encourage excellent educational practices in Moore County public schools by providing financial support and recognition for creative, engaging learning experiences.
Community support is mandatory to help us raise the funds that are then granted to teachers for creative educational projects. We plan and execute a variety of fundraising events in order to help fulfill our mission and our principal event is an annual celebration in which we induct new members to the Moore County Graduates’ Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame recognizes graduates of the Moore County public school system who have gone on to distinguish themselves in their chosen fields.
