Your support makes great education possible.


Every dollar you gives help turn a standard public education into one filled with opportunity and limitless possibility. Your gift truly makes a difference in the lives of our students and enriches our entire community.

The Fund for Public education is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity and all gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. We accept gifts of cash, check, and credit card, as well as bequests and beneficiary assignments. We never charge any fees for administering your gift.

While donor-designated gifts are always welcome, we encourage you to please consider an unrestricted gift. Your generous contribution gives us the power to put your gift to use where it is most needed, amplifying its impact and tackling the biggest problems facing our public schools.
