The Power of Education Foundations in Supporting Schools


Education Foundations have become an integral part of the United States education system. In Pennsylvania, about 40% of the school districts are supported by an education foundation. These nonprofit organizations provide resources and support to students, teachers, and schools to improve student achievement and create a more equitable learning environment. In the Great Valley School District, The Great Valley School District Education Foundation serves as a bridge between the community and schools by offering a charitable vehicle to support innovative programming and support for the school community where the school budget may fall short.


Across the country, education foundations have become powerful partners in the effort to provide access to quality educational opportunities for all students. By working with local communities, foundations are helping to create programs that give students a chance to explore their career interests, gain skills, and develop a lifelong love of learning. Foundations also provide essential resources for teachers and administrators to support students on their journey toward success.


The Great Valley School District Education Foundation plays a vital role in supporting and advancing our students' educational journey at Great Valley. With their financial support, these programs can provide students with access to resources and experiences they wouldn't otherwise be able to access. From providing STEM education opportunities to funding after-school activities, the foundation is helping bridge the gap between what schools can offer and what students need.


One of the critical values of education foundations is that they help to bridge the gap between what schools can provide with their limited budgets and what students need to succeed academically and personally. Foundations can provide funding for programs, materials, and technology that might not otherwise be available and support for teachers and staff.

Education foundations also serve as a way to engage and involve the broader community in education. By supporting schools and students, foundations help to build a sense of investment and ownership in the education system among parents, local businesses, and other stakeholders.


Overall, education foundations are essential because they provide critical support for schools and students, help to build community engagement in education, and promote innovation and excellence in teaching and learning.
