Private Support for Public Education

Charlotte Advocates for Education was established in 1991 as the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Education Foundation by a group of key business and community leaders who had a vision for cultivating private support for local public education.

Since that time, the Advocates for Education has worked to build citizen awareness and understanding of the need for high quality public education in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.

Advocates for Education depend on individuals, businesses, grants and foundations to continue its valuable work. If you believe in quality education for all children, innovation in teaching and community involvement, then you, your business or your foundation should support Charlotte Advocates for Education.
