What We Do And How It Works

What is the Mission of Education Foundation of Indian River County?

The Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that works to enhance our community’s investment in our schools with the goal of achieving excellence for students and educators.

How do We Fulfill our Mission?

By providing links from the community at large to classroom projects and goals:

Examples…

  • Developing problem solving minds and providing college scholarships through the Indian River Regional Science & Engineering Fair
  • Engaging local business owners in the process of providing real world experiences through internships.

By initiating and supporting innovative programs throughout the county’s schools:

Examples…

  • STEP into Kindergarten to increase Kindergarten readiness rates
  • SPEAK UP! And the Phoenix Kitchen at the Wabasso School – Providing children with special needs the tools to transition as productive members of our community.

By collaborating with Indian River Schools to develop and secure funding for professional development:

Examples…

  • Algebra Counts 2 to increase mathematical proficiencies that lead to increased graduation rates
  • Moonshot Leaders create Out of this World Readers – Development of our principals as instructional leaders.

How Is the Education Foundation organized?

We have a volunteer board. Members of the board lead and serve on committees, such as, marketing and development. The Executive Committee guides the organization, by engaging the board members in the process of governance and strategic planning.

We have 2 full time staff members: an Executive Director and a Program Manager.  A part-time (20 hour seasonal employee) assists with administrative and development tasks.

Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to become more involved in making a difference in the life of a child.
