Founded in 1986, the Fulton Education Foundation was created to extend the reach of the Fulton County Board of Education and strengthen the relationship between schools and their communities. The Foundation enhances the performance and lives of Fulton County students innovating programs in four key areas: Enrichment Activities for Students, Recognizing Student Achievement, Physical Well-Being of Students, and Enhancing Career Options for Students.
The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization strives to bridge the gaps to success for our large and diverse student body, while supporting the Fulton County School System’s ongoing tradition of excellence.
The Fulton Education Foundation relies heavily on its board of directors, the Metropolitan Atlanta corporate community, and members of the community to support our programs. Governed by a volunteer board of business executives and local community leaders, the Foundation continually assesses supporting programs that aid Fulton County Schools System in their mission to prepare young people for life.
Founded in 1871, Fulton County Schools (FCS) covers 80 miles in length and ranges from the cities of Chattahoochee Hills and Palmetto in the south to the cities of Milton, Alpharetta, and Johns Creek in the north.

Our 96,000 student population continues to grow every year!
We view strong public schools as The Foundation of vibrant communities. Your support enhances opportunities for the children of Fulton County.
