White Papers

Property taxes and mill levies are no longer funding public education sufficiently.

EFP sees unprecedented new opportunities for major corporations and large public school districts to solve the current funding crisis in education together. We build mutually beneficial partnerships between education-friendly brands and school districts.

Why should brands support public education? How does appropriate corporate support of public schools make sense for parents, teachers and the K-12 community? Where will society see the long-term benefit?

EFP answers these big questions in our Evolved Thinking series. Our white papers address why brands and schools must work together to advance student achievement.
