In 2003 a diverse group of citizens came together to brainstorm ways to elevate the educational experiences of students in the Auburn public schools from average to extraordinary. As a result, the Auburn Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public foundation, was formed.
Our mission supports an enriched learning environment for students of the Auburn Enlarged City School District through collaborations, gifts, and grants. Through a grants process, we award funding to educators who have creative ideas that will capture the attention and imagination of their students. Projects must fall within at least one of the following six areas—Academics, Arts, Life Skills, Character Education, Physical Education & Wellness, and Technology—but outside of the regular school district budget.
We also work to establish meaningful partnerships among our schools, local businesses, and service organizations which will improve our community.
Our 15-member volunteer Board is made of community members and business leaders who are committed to educational excellence. Thank you for your service!
