About the Consortium and Florida’s Local Education Foundations

Our Mission

The CFEF advances student achievement in Florida through local education foundations by increasing their capacity and resources in partnership with key stakeholders.

Our member education foundations raise $63 million annually to support initiatives that increase student achievement in Florida! They invest in programs not funded through tax dollars, including student scholarships, mentoring and other drop-out prevention strategies, teaching innovation and recognition programs, classroom grants, college readiness and access programs, literacy improvement strategies, technical/career education initiatives, and targeted support for low-performing students and schools.
