The Education Foundation of Indian River County's mission is to enrich and enhance educational opportunities.  We work closely with educational leaders to identify and prioritize projects align with these efforts.
 
Through the generousity of community partners such as Impact 100, Bank of America,  Children Services Advisory Council, Indian River Community Foundation, John's Community Service League, The John's Island Foundation, United Way of Vero Beach, Motorola, AT&T, Toyota of Vero Beach, School District Education Foundation Matching Grant Program (from the Florida Legislature), Indian River Lawyers Auxiliary and a Business Partnership with Piper Aircraft, we have been able to help students and teachers achieve BIG dreams.
 
We are continuing to work closely with the District to support the following major projects:
