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.
award small cash grants to teachers who want to try something new in the classroom to stimulate learning and need a few hundred dollars to make their idea a reality. In 23 years, more than 1,150 projects have been funded.
