The mission of the Rogers Public Education Foundation is to enhance the quality of public education in our community by collecting and distributing funds for worthwhile academic programs -- programs that would not normally be funded through conventional means.   This investment in our schools funds outstanding educational initiatives that are having a positive impact on the success of our students.
