One out of every four children in North Carolina lives in poverty. All across North Carolina, children struggle in school because they lack basic needs that assist them in being successful in school.  Many parents do not have the means to purchase such things as eyeglasses, shoes that fit, clothing, school supplies, school fees and much more.

The North Carolina Foundation for Public School Children’s mission is to make sure every student in K-12 has what they need to succeed in school. We accomplish this by:

  • Helping provide basic necessities for public school children;
  • Improving parents skills in order for children to be successful;
  • Expanding professional development opportunities for educators;
  • “Growing Our Own” future public school teachers through the NC Teacher Cadet Program
