ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
The Pinellas Education Foundation, of which Crown Automotive Group President and COO Jim Myers was Chairman, was recently named the No. 1 K-12 education foundation in the U.S. in a survey conducted by Tampa-based management and strategy consulting firm Dewey & Associates.
The survey, titled “Stepping Up: The Top Education Foundations in the Nation,” evaluated education foundations in the nation’s 100 largest school districts using a number of metrics, including annual revenues, revenues per student, total assets, assets per student, investment income, total program expenses, expenses per student and volunteers. This data was pulled from the non-profits’ 990 filings with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. While the Pinellas Education Foundation ranked No. 1, twelve total foundations in the state of Florida made the list’s top 50, making this an impressive showing for the state.
“All of us at the Pinellas Education Foundation are incredibly proud and honored by this recognition,” said Myers. “We work hard to provide students throughout the Pinellas area with the resources and opportunities they need to succeed, and it’s gratifying to see the efforts of so many recognized in this way.”
Founded in 1986, the Pinellas Education Foundation is a coalition of local community members and businesses that works diligently to enhance and improve the educational opportunities afforded to Pinellas County Schools students.
