"The Mission of the PEFA, Inc. is to develop support in a coordinated effort to assist and motivate student who are "at-risk" to achieve their maximum potential. To this end, it is not the intention of the Foundation to reinvent or duplicate any existing efforts to achieve this mission, rather, our goal is to support and strengthen existing means to improve the local educational system with a focus on the motivation of the students. As advocates of children in partnership with schools, parents, community and businesses, we support the educational process with time and resources to promote student success."


Celebrating Excellence
The Public Education Foundation of Anniston, Inc. is the only educational organization in the United States who has received the Standards of Excellence Institute® seal of excellence and one of eight nonprofit organizations from Anniston, Alabama. The organizations were reviewed by peer teams for compliance in ethics, accountability, advocacy, and a host of other standards.
