Our Mission

The Elkin Academic Enrichment Foundation Inc. (EAEF) supports the educational programs of Elkin City Schools as students prepare for college and careers in a global economy. The primary focus of the EAEF is to enhance and support the academic and enrichment programs provided for all students. The EAEF is a vital resource for the acceptance and solicitation of monetary gifts. This enables the school system to meet a number of diverse needs that could not be achieved solely with public funding. Through the approval of the EAEF board, the foundation grants funds for academic programs, technology innovation and support, educational materials, and overall teaching innovations. Through these grants, the EAEF helps Elkin City Schools meet their goals and enhances the lives of staff and students.


Our Structure

The EAEF is a charitable organization 501(c)(3). It is governed by board members including parents, administrators, alumni, and community members. Faculty, staff, and members of the business community provide much needed input and support. The EAEF is a true reflection of a community that believes preparation for college and careers begins with an outstanding student-focused educational experience at Elkin City Schools.
