Education and Schools

Schools & Education

A quality education empowers youth, and people of all ages, with the skills they need to thrive and flourish.  It is also central to a community’s economic viability and sustainability, naturally attracting people and businesses and contributing to future growth. Closing the achievement gap for all is a widely-held priority in our community.

The Juneau Community Foundation’s Education Fund includes projects that bring people together around the shared goals of supporting a culture of education and life-long learning, and increasing connections between the community and the educational system to increase the number of students who realize their true potential. Since 2005, we invested close to $500,000 in 30 organizations and programs that support education and schools:
