Welcome to Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation
The mission of the Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation is to help low-income, homeless and at-risk youth in Arizona schools succeed and grow in a positive educational environment. We partner with schools & agencies that serve disadvantaged youth and assist with the educational, social and family needs of their students. By giving these students the opportunities they deserve and “eliminating the barriers” that childhood homelessness and poverty may create, we hope to change the course of their lives so they may become fully literate, productive members of our society.
Our Programs Serve
We support two very unique programs, but both programs help make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged youths in Arizona.
We provide program assistance to Title I or Title I eligible schools in Arizona that qualify as exempt from tax under section 501(c)3 of the IRS Code. This support assists with school classroom projects, teachers, books fairs, supplies, uniforms, equipment, curriculum aids and special programs. We also support students by assisting with extracurricular activity funding, small post-secondary education scholarships to students who graduate through our programs and technology to assist students as they begin their college careers. In addition to these types of support, Pappas Kids assist with Holiday gifts, Thanksgiving meals and free events that Title I schools host to keep parents and students engaged in positive after school activities.
As a School Tuition Organization, we provide scholarships to children from economically disadvantaged families in Arizona. These scholarships enable students to attend a private primary or secondary school of their choice. (To date we have provided over 7,700 scholarships to underprivileged children.)
We will provide program funding to Title I or Title I eligible schools in Arizona that qualify as exempt from tax under section 501(c)3 of the IRS Code.
Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation would like to thank our community partners.
