It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of APESF’s founder, Mark Moerkerke.
In 1998, Mark launched APESF with a clear vision to create a school tuition organization that served Arizona families seeking the “Best-Fit” education for their children. Over the past 23 years, thousands of students across the state of Arizona have benefited from the financial support of this remarkable scholarship program. Mark’s heart was always to serve financially challenged families that could not otherwise afford the schools that best fit their children’s educational needs.
Mark was a warm, kind, and generous leader and a committed and passionate advocate for school choice. As a beloved member of our APESF family, he will be deeply missed.
