The Jacksonville Public Education Fund is celebrating its sixth year of existence with a move to new offices and a refreshed branding to match its holistic approach to informing and mobilizing the community to advocate for high-quality public schools for all children in Duval County.
The Jacksonville Public Education Fund is now headquartered at the new Jessie Ball duPont Center, and its address has changed to 40 East Adams Street, Suite 100, Jacksonville, FL 32202. All phone numbers and email addresses remain the same.
The Jacksonville Public Education Fund incorporated in 2009, hiring its first staff later that year, including President Trey Csar. Today, it is a high-capacity local education fund, with 12 staff members and an annual budget of nearly $2 million. The organization has staff focused in four key departmental areas: Data & Research, Community Mobilization, Advocacy & Communications and Strategic Investment.
“Moving to the new duPont Center is a natural next step for us, and we can’t wait to be co-located with so many of the organizations that we collaborate with on a regular basis,” Csar said.
The new tagline — “Powering Potential" — and visual identity were created by local firm Brunet-García Advertising.
"Brunet-García believes strongly in partnering with organizations that are making a positive impact on our community, and the Jacksonville Public Education Fund fits the bill, having transformed the landscape for public schools over the last several years,” said Diane Brunet-García, Partner/Vice President. “We have created a visual identity that truly represents an organization that takes a comprehensive and community-focused approach to improving public education, and we are thrilled with the results."
“Our goal in creating this new site was to offer a customized solution that helps every visitor connect with the organization, so that they can ultimately benefit from the important work that The Jacksonville Public Education Fund is doing,” said Donny Lamey, CEO of DiscoverTec. “The redesign makes it easier for the local community to access the wealth of information they need to improve public schools across the city.”
