Created in 1983 by the Ford Foundation through the Public Education Fund, PEF began its work by providing small grants to teachers. Over time, PEF has moved from “doing good” to “making a difference” to “stimulating change.” The next 25 years will be even more challenging as new technologies and social organizations emerge. We hope you will continue to support PEF as we assure a high quality education for all of Paterson’s children.

We celebrated our first 25 years of service to the children of Paterson in 2008 with a wonderful Gala honoring the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation.
