Board of DirectorsMessage from the Board President:

I am deeply humbled and honored to serve as the President of the Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation. My journey started in 2005 when I volunteered at the Thomas J. Pappas School in Phoenix. It was the first day of school and I asked one of the students what he wanted to be when he grew up. He said he wanted to go to jail because you could eat for free there. He was six years old. At that moment, I realized my true purpose in life.

We really can make a huge difference in the lives of these children. Through the Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation, we can help educate, feed, clothe, love, nurture, provide medical and dental care and guide these children and their families to a life of self-esteem and dignity. We can take them from homeless and scared to hopeful and confident.

Since 2007, our Pappas Kids Scholarship Foundation has provided over 300 scholarships for homeless and underprivileged children so they can attend Arizona qualified private schools. Can you image the difference it makes in the lives and futures of these children to attend such fine schools? We are able to provide these scholarships because of your generous donations to our Private School Tuition Tax Credit Program.

I am still volunteering weekly in the classroom and, over the past seven years, I have come to realize that none of the opportunities we have been blessed to provide for these children would have been possible without the kind and generous support of our donors. We are grateful to all of our past and present donors and would love to have the support of new donors to help us continue to serve these precious children. Thank you for your generosity. You truly can change the direction of a young life forever.

With gratitude,
Board President
