The Future Leaders Fund was established in 2006 by EducationMatters to support today’s students so they can become tomorrow’s leaders. This Fund supports program enhancements supporting excellence in academics, citizenship, personal development and character.

The program fund supports enhancements and opportunities for students to develop and nurture their leadership skills through school. Through the generous support of individual donors, the Future Leaders Award Fund supports scholarships, which open the doors for students to pursue post-secondary education by celebrating their contributions to their school and community during their educational experiences.

With the proceeds from the CBE Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner and gifts from our amazing donors, EducationMatters has been able to provide funds to the following programs through the Future Leaders Fund.
