Friendship Education Foundation

The mission of Friendship Education Foundation (“FEF” or “the Foundation”) is to create in underserved communities throughout the nation a world-class education that motivates students to achieve high academic standards, enjoy learning, and develop as ethical, literate, well-rounded and self-sufficient citizens who contribute actively to their communities.

Our Goal: The Foundation plans to seek additional opportunities to fulfill its mission to bring a world-class education to underserved communities throughout the U.S. The Foundation has been invited by dozens of states, school districts, foundations, and charter school authorizers to serve local non-profit charter school applicants. The Foundation will be selective about its expansion and only operate in situations where it can assure a meaningful positive impact on traditionally underserved students and communities.
