Who We Are

The Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that operates independently from the school district under its own budget and Board of Directors. The Board is made up of 30+ community leaders that serve as ambassadors and advocates for FEF's mission in the community.

What We Do

The Foundation has funded over $1,200,000 in teacher grants since it's inception in 1999. Each year teachers are encouraged to dream big and develop grants that will transform learning in their classroom. Grants are purchased by the community and the Foundation using funds raised through various events and campaigns throughout the year. FEF has established an Endowment Fund, now totaling over $1,233,784 to ensure the financial security of the Foundation.
