Solving Problems. Changing Lives.

Helping Charlotte County students reach their full potential is what the Education Foundation is all about. We bring resources and people together to support and enhance education for our students. Through financial resources, mentoring, and goal setting, we are helping young leaders improve the world around them and building a stronger community for all of us.


Imagine a student discovering their true talents. Imagine all of our students walking across the stage to accept their high school diploma and their college degree. Imagine you being a part of making this happen. Through your generous financial support, your time spent mentoring and shaping a student, and/or enlisting other community members to help, we can make our imaginations come to life with true success stories, one child at a time.
