About Peabody Education Foundation
Founded in 1985 by a group of community members, business leaders, and educators seeking to enhance the quality of Peabody public education, the Peabody Education Foundation (formerly the Peabody Education Council) integrates resources from all facets of the community into the city’s schools. The Peabody Education Foundation provides unique programs and advanced technology to thousands of students who might otherwise not enjoy such experiences due to budget constraints. Our programs are intended to benefit and guide children as they develop into successful citizens and leaders. With the support of the community, we are able to continue offering programs to encourage creativity and inspiration in Peabody’s students.
