Anderson Education Making a Difference

Since 1986, the Anderson Education Foundation has nurtured a legacy for learning in the local public schools.

The generosity of donors has enabled the Foundation to provide some $400,000 in grants that turn good ideas into great learning experiences for Anderson Community Schools students.

As community revitalization continues, it is essential to offer the best in public education. The Anderson Education Foundation is dedicated to this purpose, in partnership with the school corporation, business leaders, community volunteers, parents, alumni, and friends across the nation.

  • AEF funded projects engage some 4,000 children in fun, but meaningful projects every school year.
