Innovation in action
Since 1985, The Education Fund has worked side-by-side with the private sector to direct resources where they are needed most in Miami-Dade schools. Our mission is to design and implement initiatives to improve our schools and bring excellence to public education in Miami-Dade.
The Education Fund's first program awarded mini-grants to classroom teachers. Today, we operate up to a dozen initiatives at any given time, ranging from small grants programs to large-scale school improvement initiatives, all aimed at increasing student achievement.
Together, these programs benefit all of the 390+ schools, 22,000+ teachers and 340,000+ students in Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
Citi Postsecondary Success Project (CPSP) is a five-year
collaborative effort with Miami-Dade County Public Schools, community organizations
and local postsecondary institutions to increase the number of low-income
high-school students who enroll and succeed in postsecondary education. The
program focuses on academic preparation, financial planning, parental
involvement and development of school- and community-wide awareness of college readiness. Read more
