The Jacksonville Public Education Fund activates and builds the capacity of leaders committed to ensuring quality public schools in Duval County improve outcomes with and for all students.

We do this by: 1) Engaging: We engage, align and support community parent, teacher, school and system leaders to use their voice, influence, skills and abilities to improve public schools. 2) Informing: We conduct research and broadly communicate to inform leaders of policy, practice and cultural changes that will promote excellence and equity for students and communities. 3) Mobilizing: We mobilize leaders at all levels to take action to improve student opportunity, learning and achievement in our public schools.

The Jacksonville Public Education Fund has three main capacities. They are: Community Mobilization, Data & Research and Policy & Advocacy.

TEACHER ENGAGEMENT & RETENTION: We provide meaningful networking and professional learning opportunities and celebratory recognition for teachers and assist in the retention and recruitment of Duval County public school teachers. PARENT AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: We engage parents and community members with schools and the educational system; obtain feedback to drive policy and action; increase the knowledge base around systems, policies, and challenges; and provide an avenue for parents, caregivers, and community members to have a voice in public education. SCHOOL LEADER DEVELOPMENT: We research what great school leadership looks like, how to develop strong school leaders, how to empower great school leaders, and the overall impact of great leadership. EDUCATION SYSTEM ENGAGEMENT :We work with education leaders at all levels to inform them of evidence-based practices, look for meaningful partnership opportunities, and ensure accountability for the proper education of our children.

2009-present: JPEF hosts annual EDDY Awards to celebrate DCPS teachers of the year. The event has evolved into a program to build a network of teacher leaders. 2011-present: The ONE in THREE art exhibit (2011-12) drew 75,000 viewers and launched the ONE by ONE community mobilization campaign. 2012-present: JPEF serves as an information source for the community during the school board elections (2012, 2014, 2016, 2018) and DCPS's search for a new superintendent (2012, 2018). 2012-present: School Facts Jax (now the Learning Center) launches on JPEF's website to provide the community with school academic performance data. 2013-18: Quality Education for All Fund invests $40m in human capital in 36 historically low-performing schools. 2013-present: JPEF conducts Annual Public Education Poll and presents findings to the community. 2017-present: Teachers Are More campaign highlights the important role teachers play in our community 2018: Parents Who Lead launches its inaugural cohort.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
