We envision a future in which every child graduates ready for postsecondary education and a career.  Focusing on initiatives that bring systemic change, we see three immediate paths to this vision: The continued evolution and strengthening of Florida’s standards and school accountability systems, understanding the foundations – and the potential to close – racial and economic achievement gaps, and a relentless effort to ensure that every child reads on grade level by the end of the 3rd grade.


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.


We saw the need for direct parent communication as a strategy for strengthening Florida’s system for standards and accountability, and we responded immediately. empowers parents with the information they need to lead in the education of their children. Our strategic agility is at the heart of our value proposition. With the support of an independent board of Florida business and philanthropic leaders –  and of Florida’s Commissioner of Education — the Foundation has a thriving culture of accountability and excellence. As a result, investments and outcomes are always connected.
