The Piedmont Education Foundation is seeking individuals who are passionate about supporting Piedmont schools and are interested in joining the Board of Directors. The mission of PEF is to provide sustained financial support to Piedmont schools through fundraising and community engagement. The Board and staff work throughout the year to fundraise for our schools while acting as ambassadors to the community.
Current Board members actively prepare for and engage during bimonthly board meetings and serve on various committees in assigned roles. Each Board member makes a personally meaningful donation at the start of each year’s Giving Campaign and engages in personal outreach to encourage others in the community to do the same. As ambassadors, Board members share consistently positive viewpoints and information in public conversations about PEF and PUSD, and attend Parent Club and/or Support Group meetings as appropriate.
The nomination period runs through mid-March, with elections in May and terms beginning in August. Board members are elected for two-year terms and are required to either live in Piedmont or have a child or grandchild currently attending Piedmont schools. PEF encourages anyone who believes they would be an asset to the organization to submit a brief statement for review by PEF’s Governance Committee to firstname.lastname@example.org.
