WakeEd believes education is one of the most important tools for a successful life.

Every student deserves an excellent public education. Your investment in WakeEd ensures that happens.

For more than 30 years, your support has allowed WakeEd to invest in the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS). An investment provides a return, and we have seen test scores rise, school facilities built, and more than $1.5 million in teacher grants.

There are three major ways every dollar you invest will provide a return on your investment.

  • A constantly improving educational experience for all children: As we align classroom instruction with business needs, school becomes more relevant and rigorous for students. Once graduated, students are prepared for college or career.
  • A better educated workforce and a healthy economy: A healthy school system provides employees that are able to tackle their jobs on day one. In addition, excellent schools attract the best and the brightest talent to the Triangle.
  • A strong community of citizens: Excellent schools and a healthy economy lead to a strong community where citizens can live, work, and play.
