The New Kent Educational Foundation was started in 2004 by a group of citizens looking for a way to provide additional resources for the schools in New Kent County, VA.  Over the past ten years the foundation has provided funding for numerous activities and resources to better the education of the New Kent students.


Some of the projects funded by the foundation include annual teacher grants, five student scholarships, a technology resource library, a variety of special projects, and an annual CPR day.  The foundation is always looking for new ideas and new members to help with supporting the education of our citizens.  If you would like to join in the efforts of the foundation visit our Get Involved page to learn more about ways to help.
