The Charger Foundation is an independent community-based organization, formed in 2018 exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The foundation seeks to help provide the best academic education and experience it can for students, teachers, and administration by supporting them with additional educational material and/or tools to create an exciting, evolving, and thriving learning environment. The Foundation seeks to enhance the educational opportunities offered to children in the Martin School System through solicitation of funds, expertise and greater involvement from parents, businesses, and the community at large. The Charger Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which means all donations are tax exempt.
The foundation is composed of a governing board of directors with an executive committee of officers elected by the board consisting of a chairman, vice-chairman, secretary, and treasurer. The board is self-sustaining through member and community recommendations of individuals who commit and work toward improving education for the students in Martin schools.
The Charger Foundation is comprised of a fifteen-member board with rotating terms.
