Prattville, AL – The Autauga Education Foundation (AEF) will be holding a Grant Reception on Tuesday, January 31, 2017, hosted by the Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce. The Foundation has allocated over $32,000 for 23 different programs and/or projects for schools in the Autauga County School System.
AEF is a nonprofit organization that provides sustainable resources and builds community support to ensure academic excellence and strong character development in Autauga County Schools. The Foundation is a separate and independent organization that works in concert with the Autauga County School System to provide support for its goals and objectives. Since the Foundation’s establishment in 1995, over $350,000 has been granted to Autauga County District Schools, enhancing educational programs and student experiences throughout the county.
This past September the Foundation awarded $24,500 to 12 schools in the district. “We are so excited to increase our funding and be able to award funds twice in the same school year,” said Bob Gipson, 2017 AEF Board President. Gipson added, “The additional funds were made possible by the generosity of our community and the very teachers that dedicate so much to our students. Without support of our 2016 A+ Banquet, which is held each spring, and our Payroll Deduction Program, these funds would not be possible at this time.”
The Autauga Education Foundation helps to develop and provide opportunities for local governments, businesses, individuals and philanthropic foundations to become actively engaged as volunteers and investors in our county school system.
