For Immediate Release

top 10 2016

BREVARD COUNTY, FLA. – The nation’s annual study and ranking of K-12 education foundations, “Stepping Up: The Top K-12 Education Foundations in the Nation,” has ranked the Brevard Schools Foundation eighth in the nation, making 2016 the second consecutive year the foundation has been in the nation’s top 10.

Sponsored by Foundant Technologies, which provides online grants and scholarship management solutions, and SaveAround, which helps schools and education foundations raise money through exclusive coupon books, the study advocates the importance of K-12 education foundations and recognizes those that perform well in the top 200 largest school districts in the nation as well as other top-performing foundations in smaller school districts.  The study analyzes eight key performance categories to determine the ranking: annual revenues, revenues per student, total assets, assets per student, investment income, total program expenses, expenses per student, and human capital (volunteers).

“Most parents and taxpayers are not aware of how K-12 education foundations are enhancing and innovating public education,” said Dewey Caruthers, study author and president of Caruthers Institute.  “Education foundations are providing vital programs for students and valuable grants for teachers that otherwise would not exist.”

“We are proud and honored to receive a top-10 ranking again this year,” said Janice Kershaw, executive director of Brevard Schools Foundation. “Our board and staff work extremely hard to enhance the quality of our school system and to do it in a meaningful and efficient way.”
