Become a Partner in Education and become a Partner in the Future

Since 1988, the Manatee Education Foundation has been granting wishes and opening doors as the only foundation solely dedicated to providing funds for Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Manatee County. As a 501(c)(3), we strive to offer endless learning possibilities for all students through mutually beneficial community and business partnerships that focus on creative and advanced learning techniques.

Partnerships with the Manatee Education Foundation can be customized to focus on a specific subject of study, to generate a financial contribution to an individual school or to benefit the entire school district.


How to Get Involved

Together with the Manatee Education Foundation, you can create a tax deductible partnership or gift that is best for you or your business to benefit the teachers and students of Manatee County.
