LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Fayette Education Foundation kicked off its fall “Every Student Matters” fundraising campaign this week.
With a purpose of elevating $40,981, the Foundation introduced Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc.’s lead reward of $20,000.
The campaign’s greenback purpose represents the 40,981 college students enrolled in Fayette County’s public college system for the 2021-22 college yr.
“At Toyota we believe we all have a stake in our public schools. As an early investor in The Fayette Education Foundation, we hope to motivate others to support the Foundation because we know they have increased flexibility to intervene swiftly and expertly to enhance the experiences of all public school students in Fayette County,” mentioned Kim Sweazy, Community Relations/External Affairs Analyst at Toyota. “The cornerstone of a strong community is a quality public education system. Toyota believes investing in the establishment of The Fayette Education Foundation will expedite its ability of it to identify and fulfill unmet educational needs and remove barriers to education.”
The Fayette Education Foundation operates independently of the Fayette County Public School district but cultivates improvements to profit college students and employees and to reinforce the mission of the varsity district.
Because of historic uncertainty and restrictions inherent within the Kentucky public college finance system, the varsity district collaborates with the Foundation to actively search various sources of income to reinforce and broaden the standard of instructional programming.
“We encourage others in the community to join Toyota to invest in the “Every Student Matters” campaign by means of The Fayette Education Foundation,” mentioned Jeff Koonce, Market President at WesBanco and Foundation board chair.
To make a tax-deductible reward, go to fayettefoundation.org or mail donations to: The Fayette Education Foundation, Every Student Matters Campaign, P.O. Box 910951, Lexington, KY 40591-0951.
