How We Make A Difference – Today and in the Future

The Education Foundation of Indian River County (EFIRC) operates both as a funding source and as a service provider for the school community.

We work with the 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.
