In November 2011, after the failure of a mill levy tax proposed to fund public education in Eagle County, Colorado many concerned and passionate community members came together to create a solution to help mitigate the approximately $14,000,000 in state budget cuts to the Eagle County School District that occurred over a three year span of time starting in 2009.
The purpose of the Education Foundation of Eagle County is to support the creation and delivery of an excellent learning experience for students within the Eagle County public school system. The Education Foundation of Eagle County provides funding for tools, technology and staff within Eagle County Schools through public grants and private donations. EFEC works to provide sustainable funding sources through local and statewide legislative advocacy on K-12 education funding policy and mobilizes community engagement by recognizing excellence in teaching.
The Public Education Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization established in 2001, now the Education Foundation of Eagle County (EFEC), has worked in partnership with Eagle County Schools to fund strategic initiatives and programs for quality education in Eagle County.
We believe there has never been a more critical time to contribute. A high quality public education system is what Eagle County expects and what our children and community deserve.
