Partnership To Transform Broward Schools Gains Attention

August 20, 2019
Community Foundation of Broward President/CEO Linda B. Carter and Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie.

South Florida Business & Wealth magazine recently highlighted how Community Foundation of Broward Fundholders are helping transform middle school education to boost Broward’s graduation rates.

Our Fundholders recognize that middle school is a pivot point where students who fall behind academically can end up in a downward spiral that leads to dropping out. The Community Foundation’s 10 Issues That Matter include boosting graduation rates through philanthropy we call School is Cool.

Now the Foundation’s largest ever grant – $3 million spread over three years – is being matched in an innovative partnership with Broward County Public Schools to improve local middle schools.
