About Us

Join Our Team

At Chesterfield Education Foundation, we’re all here for the same reason - to support the educational needs of our community’s children. Our commitment to students and education began in 1989 with our partnership with Chesterfield County Public Schools (CCPS). Since its formation, the foundation has provided close to $10 million in resources, affecting more than 63,000 students, teachers, parents, and guardians across Chesterfield County.

As a foundation, we do more than provide additional funding for public education, we are innovators working in partnership with parents, teachers, and administrators, continually identifying and developing initiatives that improve school performance and student achievement. We have experienced a 490% increase in funding for projects and innovative grants in our schools since 2016. As we grow, so does our need for partners, donors, and passionate, caring team members.

Our work in support of CCPS is more crucial than ever as principals and teachers look for new instructional strategies and approaches to strengthen public schools and ignite student learning. Each employee contributes directly to the accomplishments of our goals and we hope you will take pride in being a member of our team.
