During this season of giving, help us bridge the gap.

Consider donating to Foundation Academies to help us bridge our funding gap and change the path of a child’s life.

An amazing 100% of our graduates are accepted to a college or university.

FA serves 1,000 K-12 children in Trenton.

Despite our success, as a public charter, FA receives less government funding per student ($5,000) than traditional public schools.

Where Your Donation Goes

As a public charter school, Foundation Academies achieves extraordinary results while receiving only approximately 70% of the per-student dollar allocation that the district schools receive.

With your help, we can continue to provide rich educational experiences, extend our reach to the more than 500 Trenton students on our waiting lists, and work to redefine what’s possible in K-12 public education.
