2016-2017 Annual Matching Funds Membership Campaign

Goal: $1 + $1= $120,000

 

Beginning in February and continuing through May 2017 the Education Foundation has begun an Annual Membership Campaign designed to raise $60,000 locally to be used for Teacher Grants.

During this campaign all donations will qualify for a dollar for dollar match from the Florida State Matching Grant Program up to an additional $60,000.

Our goal is to raise a total of $120,000 for teacher grants, one dollar at a time!

$1 + $1 = $120,000          

Teacher grants provide funding to classrooms & schools to help increase graduation rates. We focus our resources on programs that improve literacy, help a struggling student improve their grades as well as support STEM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and CTE programs (Career & Technical Education).

We believe in helping one child at a time, one teacher at a time and one school at a time. No donation is too small and pledges can be paid monthly.

Click “Ways to Give” to learn more and make a pledge today. You can choose a Membership or a Sponsorship pledge and even choose our special $20 per month pledge for a free gift. Simply select “General Donation” after clicking “Donate” or “Donate Now” to ensure your pledge is matched.

Every dollar you pledge will be matched during this campaign

If you are interested in attending a tour of a school and learn first-hand how our programs help our students, please contact the Education Foundation for an upcoming tour event.

Happy New Year to all of our Members, Sponsors, and St. Lucie County Residents!!

Last year was a much improved year for the Education Foundation and as we enter 2016 we have a full program of events underway.

The Education Foundation is the only 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization in St Lucie County chartered as a direct support organization for the St. Lucie County School District. Our mission is to Promote, Encourage and Recognize Excellence in Public Education. We do this by providing scholarships to students and grants to teachers to further public K-12 education.

As we look into 2016, we are working with the School District to help support the “Night of the Stars” event which takes place at Lincoln Park Academy on February 20, 2016. This event salutes our dedicated teachers and support staff who inspire, stimulate and transform our children daily. This signature event culminates in the announcement of the Teacher of the Year, School Related Employee of the Year, Distinguished Minority of the Year and the Outstanding First Year Teacher awards. All proceeds from this event are generously donated to the Education Foundation.

The event is made possible by the dedicated efforts of a committee lead by Candace Stone, who is an Assistant Principal at LPA and District Coordinator of Employee Recognition as well as a Board Member of the Foundation.

We are also busy planning for our annual student scholarship awards. Visit the link on the left side of this page. In addition, look for announcements later this year about a new and improved scholarship program that will solicit “business mentors” to help support fully paid two and four year scholarships to a Florida college or university. This program will initially focus on students from low to moderate income households. It’s our contribution to help our students grow up and live right here in St Lucie County.

The Education Foundation counts on the support of businesses, organizations and individuals to raise funds for our programs. Please consider a donation or a pledge to support our efforts to ensure teachers and students have the tools and resources for success by visiting our Ways to Give section.
