30 Years: Innovation in action for education
Founded in 1985 with a grant from the Ford Foundation, The Education Fund acts on the belief that the health of Miami-Dade County begins with the quality of its public schools. By preparing and inspiring public school leaders and teachers, we impact student achievement and parent participation. By maximizing student potential, particularly for children living in poverty, we raise hopes and improve families’ futures. Our initiatives leverage private-sector investments and galvanize awareness of critical issues in public education. Our mission is to maximize students' potential, ensure they each graduate, and provide each one with opportunities for success. Our programs benefit all schools, teachers and students in Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
