What We Do and How it Works

Making Education the Foundation of our Community.....Today and Always
Pencils and notebooks to succeed in the classroom - shoes and socks to participate in all school activities - new digital content to open exciting worlds - scientific competition to inspire curiosity and critical thinking - teacher grants to engage learning - school grants to provide technology - financial opportunities to achieve higher education - endless possibilities with unlimited benefits for all students.
The Education Foundation of Indian River County (EF-IRC) exists to fulfill unmet funding gaps.  For over 20 years our program services have been focused on enriching and enhancing educational opportunities for all students and teachers, both public and private, through effective fundraising and efficient allocation of resources.
The EF-IRC is one of only ten education foundations in the State of Florida to serve both public and private school students.  This unique structure, as an independent 501c3, allows the organization to direct funding where it is needed most to build a better community.  This ensures educational opportunities for every Pre-K through 12th grade student in Indian River County.
We need your help to make education the foundation of our community.  Ninety percent of our funding comes from private donations and grants.  This structure enables the EF-IRC to respond quickly by designating funding directly into the classroom, thus avoiding the delays that often come with restricted dollars.  Your financial gift great or small will make a difference to students and teachers.
Thank you for visiting our website.  We invite you to learn more about us and how you can become involved.
