SUPPORTING OUR FUTURE
The Georgia Foundation for Public Education (GFPE) exists for the single purpose of supporting educational excellence for students in Georgia.
We provide simple ways for donors to impactfully serve students in Georgia’s K-12 system – by investing in a current GFPE project or working with GFPE to fund their vision. Together, we’re creating a better future for the 1.7 million students in Georgia’s public schools.

About The Georgia Foundation for Public Education (GFPE)
The Georgia Foundation for Public Education (GFPE) was created in 2010 by the Georgia General Assembly to support educational excellence in Georgia, including excellence at the three state schools for visually and hearing impaired students.
GFPE changes the lives of Georgia’s students – one student at a time.

Why GFPE is Important
An investment in Georgia’s education is an investment in Georgia’s future. That’s why we are asking you to empower Georgia’s K-12 youth today.
What Empowering Georgia’s Public Education Looks Like
$100,000 has been invested in graduating students from the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf, Georgia Academy for the Blind, and Georgia School for the Deaf. This enabled 18 visually impaired and hard of hearing or deaf youth to go on to post-secondary education. For some students, they were the first members of their family to do so.
Investment of $50,000 has supported Advanced Placement teacher training to help teachers better deliver content and to assist low-income students in taking the AP tests. 97% of AP course completers graduated from high school (2015).
