The mission of PEF is to provide sustained financial support to Piedmont schools through fundraising and community engagement. We put as much value in the community engagement portion of our mission as we do in fundraising for our schools. Therefore, it is up to each and every one of us to listen, learn, and support. As our schools teach, WE must be allies.

With that in mind, we would like to share some resources (most of which were recommended by our Piedmont Middle School counselors) that parents may find useful. This is by no means an exhaustive list and we will continue to add to it as resources come to our attention. If you would like to add to the list, please email us at info@piedmontedfoundation.org.
