Stepping Up: The Top K-12 Education Foundations in the Nation

Nine of the fifty highest-performing K-12 education foundations — in terms of resources, long-term sustainability, investments in programs, and human capital — in 2016 were in Florida, a report from the Caruthers Institute finds. Based on eight performance indicators — annual revenues, revenues per student, total assets, assets per student, investment income, total program expenses, expenses per student, and volunteers — the report, Stepping Up: The Top K-12 Education Foundations in the Nation 2016 (22 pages, PDF), also found that eight of the top fifty K-12 education foundations were located in Texas, while five were in Utah and four were in California. The Pinellas Education Foundation in Largo, Florida, ranked first, as it has every year since the rankings were first issued four years ago, while Achieve Minneapolis and Chattanooga Hamilton County Public Education Fund ranked in the top five for the third year in a row.
