#GivingTuesday: Powering the potential of our community’s voice


Please consider kicking off your holiday giving season with an end-of-year charitable gift to the Jacksonville Public Education Fund on #GivingTuesday.

undefinedWhen it comes to public education, taking the pulse of the community is vital. The Jacksonville Public Education Fund’s Annual Public Education Perceptions Poll comes out tomorrow, and it adds context and hard figures to the community conversation that we’re all having around how best to prepare students to succeed in the future. The poll is sponsored, funded, and analyzed by the Jacksonville Public Education Fund, thanks to the generous contributions from individuals, foundations and businesses across our community.

Your investment in the Jacksonville Public Education Fund helps to elevate the voices of community members throughout our city as we gather the data needed to inform and mobilize the community to advocate for universally high-quality public schools for all children.

Thank you!
