Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organizations goals are to:
Establish a permanent endowment that will be used to assist in funding the school.
Hiring additional staff who will be able to raise funds for our organization.
Work towards improving the quality of education of all students in Augusta through educational, athletic, and financial opportunities.

Strategies include:
Annual Dinner
Grant Writing
Soliciting donations through the Alumni, Community, Estates, and Galas

We have a dedicated group of volunteers who work tirelessly for the betterment of our faculty, staff, and students. We also have several school employees who dedicate their time in assisting us in identifying needs for the school. Each person has gone above and beyond for the foundation due to the mission of continuing the education of students that was established by the Bracken Academy in 1798. Education is the lifeblood of this community and the AIEF's goal is to continue this in perpetuity.

We are in the process of accomplishing our Technology and STEM programs. We are in the process of working on Facilities, Curriculum, and Personnel Subsidies.
