Founded in 1991 by Mrs. Marion Block, Miss Alma Lee Loy and Mr. Dan Richardson, the Education Foundation of Indian River County, Inc. was defined as a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to working through funding initiatives designed to enrich educational opportunities for children enrolled in public, private, parochial and home schools throughout Indian River County.
Over the past 26 years the Education Foundation has diligently worked to build many programs. All of these programs have been carefully designed to answer a wide variety of needs in our community: the county science fair, school supplies, sneakers for children, teacher grants to fund “thinking out-of-the-box” curriculum and teacher recognition. These efforts have established the Education Foundation as the premier conduit to connect local funders with the local needs of the K-12 education system. This valuable relationship allows us to continue to work on the front lines in our educational system, providing important resources and programs to ensure that children are not left behind on their academic journey.
