What We Do and How it Works

Making a Difference in the Life of a Child.....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) operates both as a funding source and as a service provider for the school community.
 
We work with tthe school system to develop, evaluate and secure funding for new, innovative projects, generated both by the system itself and by community organizations.
 
In addition, we seek to support the students' opportunities to achieve school success and to develop the skills needed to meet the challenges of higher education and the pursuit of vocational interests.
 
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.
