The Education Fund provides private sector leadership and support for innovation in public education. We design and implement initiatives that involve the entire community in improving our schools.

The Education Fund is happy to announce that it has been selected as a Miami Marlins charity partner for the next year.

The partnership includes a $25,000 grant to expand the Food Forests for Schools program in five additional local public elementary schools, and also supports harvest distributions and parent workshops. The Marlins donation will help the existing 16 food forests to fully recover from Hurricane Irma.

"We couldn't be more honored by the support of the Miami Marlins. This investment ensures more schools will benefit from our food forest education and the fresh produce that will be available for school lunches," says Linda Lecht, president of The Education Fund.

The American Red Cross of Greater Miami & The Keys will honor Linda Lecht, president of The Education Fund, on Thursday at the 24th Annual Sara Hoffman Woodruff Spectrum Awards luncheon recognizing outstanding women whose efforts have made significant contributions to the quality of life in South Florida. 

Health Foundation of South Florida has awarded a $200,000 grant over two years to The Education Fund ( to expand its Food Forests for Schools (FFS) initiative in public elementary schools in Miami-Dade County.
