PCLB has chosen Education Opportunity, specifically K-12 education, as its primary area of interest. We believe all children deserve access to and the opportunities of a great public education, one that prepares them to succeed in college and in life. This is the most important initiative of the foundation, receiving the largest amount of funding of all our strategic portfolios.

Our secondary portfolios include:

While these portfolios receive smaller amounts of funding, they are important in helping PCLB to achieve its goals in each of these areas of interest and are no less valued than our initiative on K-12 education. Wherever possible, they will complement our education initiative.

The Foundation also maintains a number of discretionary grants and selected project grants made in recognition of Board interests and family ties.
