Rural Education Fund

Don't let rural Georgians get left behind.

Rural school systems face unique challenges. And while many of Georgia’s 1.7 million K-12 students attend metro community schools, it may surprise you to know that – as of 2019 – Georgia trailed only North Carolina and Texas in rural school enrollment.

In fact, nearly half-a-million Georgia students are educated in rural systems. Which means their abilities to succeed upon leaving school will play a huge role in the health of our state.

To date, we’ve awarded 63 grants to rural schools and districts totaling over $354,003, and GFPE recognizes our work in this area must continue if we are to realize our goals for Georgia. Excellent public educational opportunities are important across our entire state.

Help continue and improve education for rural Georgia students. Contact GFPE today and see how your support can make a difference.
