The Public Education Foundation addresses the toughest issues facing our schools. As an independent and nonprofit organization, the Foundation objectively weighs and then champions those educational strategies that foster innovation, promote excellence and produce results.

Your support of our “Learning Matters” annual giving campaign is essential so that we can continue to ensure that new and promising initiatives find a place in our classrooms and make a lasting difference for our children and their future.

We believe in the promise of public education. We believe that public education can deliver and every child can learn.  The Public Education Foundation recognizes that community and business involvement is vital to school improvement. We are dedicated to generating community resources and facilitating collaborations and partnerships to ensure high-quality public educational opportunities for all children.

Since 1991, the Foundation, inspired by a belief that improving our public schools was too big a task for a school district to accomplish alone, has worked tirelessly to mobilize community resources to improve public schools.  The Foundation recognizes the challenges facing our state and nation.  We have developed powerful strategies to establish high leverage and high impact public-private partnerships advancing district-wide improvement efforts, empowering teachers and students, leveraging resources, ensuring accountability and delivering results.

The Public Education Foundation is dedicated to…
Improving the quality of teaching and learning
Advancing academic achievement
Increasing the graduation rate
Promoting the use of technology
Championing school improvement

The future depends upon our children’s ability to successfully face the challenges of an ever-changing, complex and demanding world.  The Public Education Foundation continues to be guided by a spirit of innovation and a willingness to take risks in an unending pursuit of bold new thinking and effective approaches to public education.
