One reason people buy homes in Frisco is because of the city’s reputation for excellent schools. That commitment to quality education has recently achieved national recognition from a leading non-profit advocate for children’s issues.

The Caruthers Institute ranked the Frisco Education Foundation (FEF) 24th in the nation in its study, “Stepping Up: The Nation’s Top K-12 Education Foundations 2016.” The study aims to advocate the importance of K-12 education foundations while recognizing those that do it best.

Caruthers based its findings on a review of eight categories: annual revenues, revenues per student, total assets, assets per student, investment income, total program expenses, expense per student and volunteers.

FEF is a non-profit organization that provides financial resources to maximize student potential in the Frisco ISD. It has awarded more than $4.2 million worth of scholarship funds to graduating seniors since 1999, and given about $550,000 in grant money to educators to carry out “Great Ideas” in the classroom.

The FEF also coordinates with several corporate sponsors to host Mindbender Academy each summer. The week-long program provides middle-school students the opportunity to explore the worlds of science, technology, engineering, art and math.
