The Paducah Public Schools District is one of the top-performing public school systems in Kentucky. However, taxes do not fully fund the exceptional programs and education that our community expects of its public schools, so we need to raise those additional funds through parent, business and community donations. We have recently assisted low income students' with school trips, purchased new musical instruments, enhanced technology curriculum and helped fund fine arts programs. The Foundation is currently fundraising for the new Innovation Hub project in Paducah.
We had the special opportunity to celebrate the work of the Paducah Public Schools Foundation at the 2017 Fred Paxton Challenge for Charities Celebration. The Foundation raised $133,440 and received a $10,000 match from the Community Foundation. We won the Challenge once again in 2018!
To all who donated, thank you!
