When you flip a switch, you count on a connection that makes the lights turn on. The Florida Education Foundation works the same way: We’re the only foundation that’s directly wired to Florida’s Department of Education. That means we are the best-connected foundation to achieve positive, systemic change in our state. But effective systemic change happens best with the buy-in of key constituencies. That’s why we work closely with public school districts, local educational foundations, higher education and other partners and agencies to be an effective change agent on the behalf of Florida’s students.
