Foundation Mission

The Foundation Supports Education, Teachers, and Kids

The Osceola County business community and the School District came together in 1985 to form a partnership designed to bolster the efforts of schools in creating quality education. This partnership produced The Education Foundation.

The initial mission of the Foundation included providing mini-grants to teachers for innovative classroom programs and supporting district efforts to recruit quality educators. The Foundation embarked on an additional effort in 1992. That year, the District’s strategic plan called for the establishment of a scholarship fund, which would guarantee the first year of college tuition for every graduating senior in Osceola County.

Today, the Foundation is a solid, non-profit organization led by a 40-member board of directors. The board is made up of parents, corporate executives, community leaders, and elected officials. This board has increased the programs of the Foundation to serve educators and district staff in their efforts to give Osceola County’s students the best education possible.

Foundation Goals
  • Establish scholarship initiatives that ensure all students are prepared for and have the resources to succeed in higher education as well as prepare for careers beyond high school.
  • Support district recruitment and retention of qualified teachers and staff by providing resources to support the work of these employees.
  • Provide Charter schools in quality facilities that support the School District of Osceola County in its efforts to ensure that all students reach their highest potential.
  • Support enhancement programs which address district, classroom and student needs.
  • Provide support for students through mentoring.
  • Foster awareness activities that involve the community in supporting and sustaining the mission of the Education Foundation of Osceola County.
