AT THE CORE

Marion County’s Public Schools are great places to learn and grown, but our schools cannot do it alone. That is where the Public Education Foundation of Marion County comes in. Together, the staff and board of directors, work to engage the community in support of our schools and together we will make a difference, whether by funding classroom grants, providing school supplies to a student or helping to send a child to college.
Our work makes a difference and we welcome you to join us!
