About Us

The Parsippany Education Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization established in 1996 to enrich the opportunities and experiences of students in the Parsippany-Troy Hills School District. Its Board of Directors consists of volunteers committed to developing a community of learners. The Foundation awards proposals put forth by the three groups who have direct involvement in the learning process: students, educators, and parents. By encouraging a triadic approach to planning educational innovations, ideas will gain strength since they have the support of all three groups from the onset.
