Our History

The Pioneer Technology Center Foundation, established in 1997, is making a difference in the lives of students. Donors to the Foundation are caring individuals who help put education and training within the reach of those who cannot achieve this important life process on their own. The Foundation is created with donations given by individuals, families, or corporations. Contributions are used to provide scholarships for student tuition, teachers and student organization trips and institutes. The Foundation Board of Trustees consists of voting members from the school district and non-voting members from Pioneer Tech’s staff.

Our Goal

The Pioneer Technology Center Foundation’s goal is to remove the financial barrier that challenges so many individuals while pursuing their education by creating scholarships for qualified and deserving students, not just for the short-term, but for generations to come.
