Mission Statement

Jordan Education Foundation helps students in Jordan School District succeed by raising money in strategic and sustainable ways.

In the News...

Souper Bowl of Caring

Child poverty and hunger are at alarming levels in Utah. In our communities, 26% of Jordan School District students are on free or reduced lunch – a measurement of students identified as being at or below poverty line standards.

Jordan Education Foundation has teamed up with KUTV News for Souper Bowl of Caring, an excellent vehicle to fight child hunger and help the Jordan School District student population that is homeless or in need of emergency assistance. When children's basic needs are met, they can do better in school.

Donate a small portion of what you would spend on Super Bowl Party food and treats to Jordan Education Foundation and help students in your own community fight hunger!

Thanks Boeing!
The world’s largest aerospace company with a production facility in West Jordan recently delivered a check to Jordan School District for $75,000! The grant money will be shared with Granite, Davis, Weber and Ogden School Districts. It will fund teacher training on the new SEEd (Science and Engineering Education) standards for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. It will also provide teachers with materials to teach the SEEd core. Thank you to Boeing for supporting students, public education and our collective future.
