EEF is the Educational Excellence Foundation serving Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists for the benefit of students in the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools.

A volunteer Board of Directors runs EEF. The Board consists of business owners, members of the community, parents, retired P-CCS employees and others who want to help make education in the P-CCS the best that it can be. EEF is an independent, community-based non-profit corporation.

P-CCS provides office space to EEF so that no costs are incurred for rent or utilities. The Superintendent is an ex-officio member of the EEF Board. The P-CCS School Board also appoints a member to the EEF Board to serve as a voting member. EEF also works closely with the P-CCS Marketing, Communications and Community Engagement Office. With an all volunteer Board of Directors, donated office space and only one part-time employee, overhead is extremely low. EEF’s goal is to put as much money as possible back into the schools in order to positively impact the maximum number of students.

EEF sponsors a number of different fundraisers throughout the year, including the annual P-CCS Back-to-School Bash and Uncorked: Wine Tasting & Strolling Dinner/Auction. Some projects are funded through grants from local community service groups, while other projects are funded through the P-CCS employees Community Giving Campaign. In addition, EEF is authorized to receive tax abatement funds.
