Together, we are Building The Future,
Brick by Brick, Mind by Mind.
The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, in partnership with the generous support of the community and the Foundation’s philanthropic and corporate partners, is building a 32,000 sq. ft. facility will serve as an education innovation hub, helping ensure high-quality public education by providing equity and access to resources and programming for students and teachers in Palm Beach County. The new facility with also include a training facility that will provide professional development for teachers and support the operation of over 100 educational programs, including the expansion of Red Apple Supplies, a free teacher resource store, equipping teachers with essential supplies for their classrooms.
The project is largely the result of the tremendous growth of Red Apple Supplies, from distributing $60,000 in supplies to 9 Title I schools in 2016, to $1.4 million of supplies to 77 Title I schools in 2021-2022. The Education Foundation's Red Apple Supplies Program plans to serve 90 public schools before the end of the 2022-2023 school year thanks to the generous support of the community and the Foundation’s philanthropic and corporate partners. Based on feedback received from 632 teacher surveys completed in December 2022, teachers reported 84% of their students learned in a more equitable classroom environment.
