Founded in 1999, the Cobb Schools Foundation was established by a group of Cobb community and business leaders to enhance the mission of the Cobb County School District. An initial grant of $1,000,000 from Cobb Energy was used to fund a portion of the athletic stadiums at Pope and Harrison High Schools, and used to build stadiums at Kennesaw Mountain and Kell High Schools. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees separate from the Cobb County School District.
The Foundation’s reach is among our almost 113,000 students, located throughout 112 schools, including 67 elementary schools, 25 middle schools, 16 high schools, one charter school, one special education center, one adult education center and one performance learning center. The Cobb County School District (CCSD) is the second largest school system in Georgia and the 23rd largest in the nation. The Foundation seeks financial support for educational programs, student scholarships, teacher recognition, student athletics and other initiatives aligned with the mission of Cobb County School District: One Team. One Goal: Student Success.
Cobb Schools Foundation is fueled by a motivated and generous community of individuals, corporations and foundations. Contributions are used to strengthen the ability to innovate, collaborate, and lead our students to the next phase of their futures. From providing tuition scholarship for our after school programs to college scholarships, and many other programs, we make sure that our students have opportunities needed for their individual success that might otherwise be limited by traditional school budgets. We are grateful for the support from our community and look for strategic partnerships to help us advance our students to their highest level of achievement.
