Who We Are

Mission and History

The Mission of the Florence Education Foundation is to enhance the educational experience for students by providing community partnerships and financial resources to promote the excellence of academics, arts, and athletics in the Florence City School system.

To carry out our mission, the Florence Education Foundation seeks private and corporate contributions and gifts.

We are the only local organization that provides funding to our schools and touches every student, every teacher and every grade.  The Foundation makes amazing things happen from Pre- k through graduation at each of the Florence City Schools.  By partnering with the Foundation, you become an investor in the future of our students.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors, all residents of the Florence City School system.

The Florence Education Foundation was created in 2001 by local community leaders to enhance the quality of education in Florence City Schools.  Since 2004 the Florence Education Foundation has awarded $489,609.62 in classroom grants to Florence City Schools.  

The Florence Education Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 organization and is completely dependent on monetary donations.
