The mission of the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation is to enhance educational opportunities for the benefit of our students, staff, and community.
The Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation is a charitable organization that supports and celebrates excellence in education. Since 1991, the Foundation has awarded $132,250 in scholarships for 235 students and $222,186 in grants for 345 educational programs. Each year we recognize individuals who advance our mission by honoring the Distinguished Alumni, Teacher of the Year, Support Staff Employee of the Year, and Partner in Education.
The Foundation also leads many initiatives - CAN (Caring About Nutrition) - a backpack food program for students on the weekend; Ray-Pec Cares - helps supply school supplies, clothing, and meet other needs as well; Big Brothers Big Sisters; and #YouMatterRP, an organization that helps encourage students in their everyday lives.
The Foundation’s investment in our students is life-changing. We have the ability to offer financial support for educational opportunities that might not otherwise be possible. To sustain this initiative, we need your help. The Foundation is funded through private donations from individuals and local businesses, fundraising events, and partnership activities that enhance education for Raymore-Peculiar students.
