Over 75 runners participated in the 6th Annual Panther Prowl and Kids Fun Run!


Thank you for your interest in our organization. The Pitman Education Foundation was organized in 1994 by four Pitman parents who wanted to provide additional educational opportunities for their children.

Since that time the PEF has given 574 grants to teachers, averaging $400 to $500 each, for a total of over $200,000 to pay for projects, equipment and field trips not funded by the school district. These grants have positively impacted the lives of thousands and thousands of Pitman youngsters!

Also, in order to continue fulfilling our mission of enriching the education and school experience of the students in the Pitman School System, we have established a trust fund to ensure our future success.

We need your help!  If you’d like to volunteer some time to enhance educational opportunities for Pitman school kids, please call either Merri Owen at 856-589-8417 or Judy Lohmann at 856-589-0435.
