Elevate the Future with Your Generosity:
Support the Personalized Education Foundation

At the Personalized Education Foundation, we are on a mission to transform lives through education. Our goal is to empower students and families by providing access to a personalized education experience. We achieve this through fundraising, Tuition Assistance, and the creation of an endowment for current and prospective members of the Christa McAuliffe Academy School of Arts and Sciences (CMASAS) community. With your support, we're making K-12 and college educational opportunities more affordable for those where a private education is just out of reach. The Personalized Education Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Why Give to the Personalized Education Foundation Fund?

Unlock Unlimited Possibilities: Your gift to the Personalized Education Foundation is a truly unrestricted contribution. This means it can be deployed where it's needed most, providing vital support to students and families facing challenging circumstances. Many of these families depend on CMASAS to escape the limitations of their local public-school systems, and the Personalized Education Foundation Tuition Assistance fund offers them relief, enabling their students to thrive in CMASAS' nurturing environment.

Community United: When you contribute to our Tuition Assistance fund, you're not just giving; you're joining a community that believes in the power of education to change lives. Your participation sends a powerful message of solidarity and attracts further support from external sources. Together, we're creating opportunities for those who might otherwise struggle to afford a CMASAS education, shaping the future, one student at a time.
