About PEF

The Pierre Educational Foundation promotes the further educational development of the Pierre Public School District students, staff and graduates through the delivery of quality educational opportunities and resources.

The Foundation was established in 1995 with a gift from the Cora London Estate. Her generosity has encouraged additional grants, gifts and endowments for educational purposes to support and enhance excellence in education for the staff and students in the Pierre Public Schools.

The Pierre Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, community based organization committed to academic excellence in the Pierre Public School District. The activities of the foundation are directed by a Board of Trustees representing business, education and the community.

The funds of the Pierre Educational foundation are managed and held by the community based Oahe Foundation through BankWest.
