What We Fund:

At the Frankfort-Elberta Education Foundation, we are dedicated to enriching the educational experience for students across the Frankfort-Elberta School District. Through the generosity of our donors and the unwavering support of our community, we fund a range of initiatives designed to empower students of all ages. 

From scholarships that pave the way to higher education and vocational opportunities, to immersive field trips that expand their horizons, we invest in the future of our students. By funding innovative programs and special projects that might not otherwise be covered by local, state, or federal resources, we aim to foster a love for learning, encourage exploration, and inspire a lifelong commitment to education. We’ve grown in our ability to have an impact and, with your added generosity and support, we can go even further!
