Begun in 1985, the The Education Fund's mission is to design, shape and implement initiatives that involve the private sector in bringing excellence to public education. The Ed Fund's initiatives encourage the development and dissemination of innovative classroom curriculum by teachers, provide material resources to classrooms, improve library/media centers, promote information and computer literacy among students and their families, and foster teacher leadership in schools.
