National Study of Education Foundations
Top 20 in the Nation in Supporting Public Education
Cy-Fair Educational Foundation Ranks Number 15
(February 8, 2012) A recent national study of education foundations and funds in the 50 largest school districts ranks the Top 20 education foundations/funds in the nation is supporting public education.
Duplicating the same study done in 2005, this year's study used school year 2009-2010 data (most recent year available) from the Form 990 (page one) that nonprofits use to report financial information. It also assessed and compared most of the same performance categories as the 2005 study.
First, the study analyzes the effectiveness of an education fund/foundation at generating and sustaining financial resources to serve the students of its school district. "The rationale is that the more financial resources a foundation can generate the more services and programs it can provide to enhance the public school experience for students," said Dewey Caruthers, president of dewey & associates, a 13- year-old management consulting firm that conducts occasional studies in education, juvenile justice and public health.
