    The mission of the Public Education Foundation of Moore County is to encourage excellence in educational practices in the Moore County Public Schools by providing financial support and recognition for engaging learning experiences.

    Community support is essential in helping to raise the funds that are then "granted" to teachers for creative, educational projects. The Public Education Foundation of Moore County plans and executes a variety of fundraising events in order to help fulfill our mission.
