FUTURES Foundation is a nonprofit, direct support organization founded in 1985 to support Volusia County Schools. Its mission is to engage business and civic leaders to promote and achieve educational excellence for Volusia County Public Schools. The Foundation’s 27-member board of directors consists of area business and civic leaders who direct and raise funds to facilitate a variety of programs in the school district. In an effort to break the cycle of poverty, FUTURES facilitates the Volusia Take Stock in Children Program which offers college tuition scholarships, mentors and hope to low-income high school students. FUTURES also funds teacher classroom mini-grants through its www.FindItFundItFundFlorida.com/Volusia portal and awarded more than $112,000 to 190 teachers for classroom/school projects during the 2018-19 school year. Teachers have until Sept. 9th to input their 2019-20 grant requests. FUTURES administers the legislatively funded School District Education Foundation (SDEF) State Matching Grants Program which will infuse more than $100,000 into schoolwide projects focusing on low performing students and literacy this year. FUTURES also offers student and staff recognition programs and Tomorrow’s Leaders, a high school junior student leadership development program.
