Supporting education and innovation.

The Citrus County Education Foundation, Inc. provides resources to support Citrus County Schools to enhance the quality of education.  

The Foundation is dedicated to:

  • Encouraging business and community involvement in the public school system.
  • Recognizing outstanding achievements of students, teachers, support personnel and administrators.
  • Fostering excellence in learning.
  • Promoting creative and innovative educational programs.

Today’s students.
Tomorrow’s leaders.

Quietly through the decades, the CCEF has distributed over $2 million, with half of that in the last five years. We’ve been able to do this through our own fundraising combined with partnerships from other organizations, such as matching grants from the State Consortium of Education Foundations. But our story is more than just a big donation.

Leave A Legacy.

The Citrus County Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and is independently audited on an annual basis. This ensures that any gift you leave for the students of Citrus County is used exactly as directed. The Citrus County Education Foundation will work with you and/or your estate planner to help set up a trust and or direct gift so that you can leave money for the school, program, or activities in our local schools that mean the most to you. And, unlike Collegiate gifting which typically is pooled in the millions, you know that every dollar you give on the local level will have a very real and very lasting impact on our community and the lives of students for generations to come.
