What is the Pope Foundation?
The Pope Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization that supports the students, faculty and administration of Pope High School and enriches the school's programs and activities.
Our Mission: To provide Pope High School with supplemental resources in the areas of Academics, Athletics, Fine Arts, and Campus Improvements.
Our Vision: To position Pope High School as the premier high school in Georgia consistently graduating students who are best prepared to succeed in their chosen career path.
Our Purpose: The School District and State provide limited funds that cover only the basics. PHSF was created to fill the gap by raising funds to provide students and faculty an environment that maintains the highest level of excellence.
Our Goal: To continue to raise funds by soliciting financial contributions from parents, alumni, local community, and corporate partners to further provide the best available resources for our school.
Our Accomplishments: Since 2007, the Foundation has raised over $500,000 in program support, equipment, technology, booster club support and campus improvements. Some of our contributions include classroom smartboards, theater renovation, building façade renovation, a state of the art weight room facility, a high-tech College and Career Center, renovated teacher lounge/meeting room.
