Welcome to the Foundation for Leon County Public Schools

The role of the Foundation for Leon County Schools is to garner private and public engagement to support Leon County Public Schools. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation provides Leon County Public Schools with funding that is typically more flexible than restricted tax dollars. The funding and extra resources generated by the Foundation helps to cover the gap that exists between what school budgets can cover, and what is truly needed to ensure the continued academic success of our students.

Since its establishment in 1986, the Foundation has invested more than $1.5 million dollars for the enhancement of public education in Leon County.
