Educational Success

Educational attainment is a key predictor for future success. We invest in strategies proven to have the most influence on students' long-term educational advancement and career preparation. This includes early childhood education and school readiness, supportive school environments and positive teacher interactions, and positive behavioral developments.

For students who do not pursue a traditional path to college, we recognize a need for innovative workforce programs that cultivate job and life skills and provide young people access to career opportunities.

The Community Foundation further enhances this body of work with support for out-of-school time enrichment initiatives, a robust scholarship program and professional development awards for educational leaders.

Our Goals:

  • Children enter school ready to learn and receive effective academic and social support throughout their educational experience.
  • Youth are nurtured to become skilled, self-sufficient and contributing members of the community.
