Prattville, AL – The Autauga Education Foundation (AEF) recently launched a new website designed to engage the community and to provide support for the Autauga County School System. The site, www.autaugaef.org, went live this week.
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 assistance with achieving its goals and objectives. Since the Foundation’s establishment in 1995, over $350,000 has been granted to schools in the Autauga County System, enhancing educational programs and student experiences throughout the county.
Bob Gipson, AEF 2017 Board President, said, “Even though we have been in the community for over 20 years, many individuals and businesses have been unaware of what we do and how they can partner with us to improve the effectiveness and impact of our efforts back to the school system.”
Amy Capps, AEF Executive Director, added the following: “We want to build collaborative relationships with organizations and stakeholders to improve the effectiveness of this impact. We wanted to do that on a broader spectrum, one that has the potential to promote excellent teaching and enhance student academic achievement, leadership opportunities, and character development.”
The site is designed to promote involvement, investment, and improvement. Site visitors can view the impact of the Foundation’s grants, as well as register for and donate to events, and stay informed about ways they can partner, support, and contribute to the Autauga County School System.
The Autauga Education Foundation helps 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.
