Mission

Our Mission

To engage community shareholders in public education and to advocate with one voice for the success of every child in Baldwin County.

Who We Are

The Coalition is an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan citizens’ organization who recognize education as the single best investment for economic prosperity and as the very core for addressing social challenges such as poverty and crime.  A State of the Workforce Report: Region 9, published by the University of Alabama’s Center for Business and Economic Research, April 2016, validates our belief stating: Improving education is important because:

  • A highly educated and productive workforce is a critical economic development asset
  • Productivity rises with education
  • Educated people are more likely to work
  • Yields high private and social rates of return on investment
Impact
A Coalition of seven local education foundations that serve communities across Baldwin’s 1600+ square miles, our strength is in the value we bring to our individual communities and our shared vision for creating world-class schools.
