Images_Education-Header.pngInvesting in Education

Education is a lifelong experience that begins well before a child ever sets foot in a classroom and continues long past a cap‐and‐gown commencement.


It is the broadest avenue to opportunity and the most influential factor in ensuring that children will grow up to do as well or better than previous generations. 


But today's young Americans are less likely to earn a diploma than their parents, a distinction not shared by any other industrialized country.


For these reasons and more, Heart of Florida United Way (HFUW) is investing in education, as well as the future of our children, community and nation.

Our Goal:

Boost every child's chance for success in school, work and life while supporting United Way Worldwide's goal to cut the number of high school dropouts in half by 2018.

Investing in Results

By working in new, strategic ways, HFUW is bringing educational grants and other types of support to our community. Funding alone will not achieve the change we envision. It takes all of us working together to move the needle and help students succeed.  Based on our work in education, HFUW is leading an innovative U.S. Department of Education program at four local public schools. United Way is funding more than a dozen critical programs that support education across all of our investment areas.
