It’s that time of year when the Foundation for Leon County Schools seeks your continued support to help raise dollars to fund classroom grants and professional development for our teachers. Over the past 6 years, the Foundation's Annual Soiree and Matching Grant has been able to raise more than $500,000 for our schools. Without your incredible support, this significant accomplishment would be unattainable.
Because we receive dollars from a state matching fund grant, we are the only direct support organization that can DOUBLE your contribution. Please become a Soiree sponsor and allow us to DOUBLE the impact of your investment!

Welcome to the Foundation for Leon County Public Schools
The Foundation for Leon County Schools garners private and public engagement to support Leon County Public Schools. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation provides our schools with programs and resources that are not supported by tax dollars, to ensure that Leon County remains one of the top performing districts in the state. Since its establishment in 1986, the Foundation has invested more than $1.7 million dollars for the enhancement of public education in Leon County.
