Local Foundations Help Edgefield County Schools

 Edgefield County School District is fortunate to have two foundations that work to serve our students. The Foundation for Public Schools in Edgefield County and the JoNathan Foundation have many differences in their approaches to supporting the district; but they both have student growth and development at heart.

 The Foundation for Public Schools in Edgefield County is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing resources to improve and enhance the educational opportunities available to all students. They believe an investment in our children is an investment in our community and in our future. Through annual fundraising, FPSEC offers Edgefield County teachers grant opportunities to create or augment programs unable to be realized through available school resources.

 The Teacher's Vision Grant application period for the 2020 - 2021 school year is now open. For more information or to find out how to support FPSEC please visit their website at www.fpsec.org.

Jonathan "Jo-Nathan" Simpkins was an Electrical Engineering student at South Carolina State University when his life was tragically taken on September 18, 1998.  "Jo-Nathan" lived a life committed to excellence and to honor his legacy, his family created the Jo-Nathan Foundation to provide access to life-changing and positive experiences and programs for other youth.  

The mission of the Jo-Nathan Foundation is to invest in the lives of young people. Our efforts focus on aiding young people in reaching their highest potential by hosting camps/events, providing opportunities to attend summer camps, and other educational activities via tuition or fee sponsorship. For more information visit http://www.thejo-nathanfoundation.org.
