Message from the Chair

Welcome to the website of the Union County Education Foundation. It is my honor and privilege to serve as the 2016-2018 Chairman of the Board of Directors. Establishment of a community based non-profit foundation to support the great work of our educators in Union County Public Schools has been a dream for more than two decades.

Through the efforts of a number of dedicated community leaders and caring citizens, this dream became a reality in 2011. The Foundation is a tax-exempt 501-(C) (3), non-profit charitable organization. We have a visionary and experienced Executive Director to help guide and focus our efforts.

Having been a resident of Union County since my college days I have seen a lot of change in the county’s school system.  I am keenly aware of the needs of our schools to provide a quality education to all students. The Union County Public Schools provides excellent educational opportunities for its students. However, it will take more than tax payers’ dollars to provide the resources for even more innovative classroom instruction, scholarships for students, opportunities for global study, and increased technology as a tool for learning. Students need and deserve these resources to reach their full potential to succeed!

I invite you to partner with the Foundation in making all of this a reality! In addition, I invite you to visit this website often for the latest news and information regarding the efforts of the Foundation on behalf of all Union County Public Schools. Please raise your hand and be counted by becoming an investor in the Union County Education Foundation. Your tax-deductible gift is appreciated and will make a difference!

Again, welcome and thank you for sharing our vision and mission to Support Students and Encourage Educators.

 

Sincerely,

Fred Edwards, Chairman of the Board
