Partners In Education

Who We Are

Partners In Education (PIE) are local residents, parents, retired educators and businesses who believe that quality education is essential to the social and economic fabric of the community. PIE is a program of the Foothills Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3).

What We Do

We raise money through our Annual Desert Foothills Community Spelling Bee, our annual appeal and other fundraisers to support two important programs.

Save One Student Scholarships

Save One Student (SOS) Scholarships ensure that preK-12 children of families with limited financial means have access to tutorial and educational enrichment programs available through Desert Foothills Community Education and Services.

Teacher/School Vision Grants

Teacher/School Vision Grants enable local schools to pilot and adopt sustainable and transferable educational innovations that advance learning in the arts, mathematics, communications, information technology or the environment.
