AVON GROVE EDUCATION FOUNDATION - BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Avon Grove Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded to expand and enhance educational opportunities for Avon Grove students. Our volunteer board consists of community members, teachers, parents, and students who are committed to making our local education the best it can be, and are dedicated to ensuring all Avon Grove students are supported to achieve their dreams.

The Foundation relies solely on money collected through generous donations by corporations, local businesses, parents, and community members.

Members serve to bridge local businesses and individuals who seek to support our local schools both by building relationships between our students and schools, and by contributing monetarily to fund innovative learning opportunities.
