Public School Foundation

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation (PSF) is the only independent, non-profit organization that is dedicated to mobilizing community support for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.  The PSF focuses on fundraising and grant giving for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school district. The PSF believes that all students deserve the best possible education and that teachers are our most valuable resource.  The PSF is an independent organization from the MES PTA, and the MES PTA is very grateful for all the PSF does to support the McDougle Elementary School Community! 

Congratulations to Ms. Cobb, who is the PSF 2019-2020  Upper Elementary Chair for Excellence in Teaching Innovation – Grades 3-5 (2-year award)

The Public School Foundation Teachers First Breakfast provides vital funding to support teacher awards, professional development, and grants.

All of these individuals contribute to our children’s education. This token of appreciation and your donation to the Teachers First Fund in their honor show our gratitude for all they do.
