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's "For the Love of Art" charity auction will be held Tuesday, June 26, to raise money for art programs in public schools, and to recognize 20 outstanding Miami-Dade public school graduates who have been successful in their respective fields.
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.
