Investing in Education
Supporting Teachers | Informing the Community | Serving as a Catalyst
Strong Schools, Strong Commumities
Dollars invested in schools stay in our community and provide an economic engine in Wake County. Did you know that a strong public school system generates up to $1.6 billion in additional lifetime incomes for graduates? High-quality public education also leads to increased home values and reduced taxpayer costs across the county.
We encourage other businesses to partner with WakeEd and join in our effort to continue to provide the best possible education in Wake County. It truly takes a village and we all have a stake in our future.
