The Hoboken Public Education Foundation (Hoboken PEF) is a parent-run non-profit organization rooted in enhancing public schools and building a stronger school community. 

Our mission is two-fold:

  • Elevate the Hoboken Public School experience through private funding.

  • Encourage the involvement of other parents, community members and local businesses in preserving and improving the quality of a Hoboken public education for all our students.

We are proud to garner donations, event attendance and volunteer help from the community and beyond. Thanks to this generous support, we are funding important initiatives across our district.
