About Us

We Are Champions For Learning

Founded in 1990, the Education Foundation of Collier County – Champions For Learning’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for educational success by investing in Collier’s students and educators. Our Student Programs are designed to equip and prepare students for their future learning and career goals, and our Educator Programs are designed to value, empower, and support our educators to experience professional success. We are the lead organization facilitating Future Ready Collier, a collective impact initiative designed to build an educational pipeline for college, career, and life readiness. Recognized as the education foundation serving Collier County by the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations, Champions For Learning serves a unique role as a conduit for students, educators, principals, schools, and the community to ensure student and educator success.

Champions For Learning is a volunteer driven organization. Of the nearly 500 people who volunteer with us each year, more than 240 dedicate two to four hours of their time to our organization every week. With dedicated volunteers and a committed administrative team, Champions For Learning embodies the belief that education is everything!
