About The Foundation
The Port Aransas Education Foundation (PAEF) was founded in August 2006 to raise funds used to create exceptional
and enriching educational experiences for the students in the Port Aransas Independent School District
(PAISD). Our goals and those of our supporters do not include
aspects of test results but rather involve making available
experiences and opportunities that will enhance education for the
students at PAISD. We encourage PAISD teachers to think
outside the test!
Who We Are

funds for educational materials, events, and training not traditionally funded by school budgets.
Each year, we award funds to PAISD staff
members via a grant process. To learn more about our grant
