About Us    

The mission of the Kettering Education Foundation — Create opportunities for interested citizens, organizations and businesses to enhance the educational opportunities in the Kettering City Schools. Contributions are used to fund a grants program supporting curriculum based programs and innovative teaching.

Vision — To support the Kettering School Districts efforts to be the innovative leader in K-12 education throughout the Miami Valley.

History — The Kettering Education Foundation began in 1990 as a dream of Kettering resident, Susan Bieber, whose research showed that our community was one of the few in the Dayton area without a private foundation for its schools.

Susan and the other founders, John Bieber, Roger Bauser, Dale Medford and Chuck Havener, spent three years investigating the needs of the school district and programs offered by other foundations across the state of Ohio.
In 1993, the group established itself as a legal entity and incorporated as a non-profit 501 (c)(3)corporation under the laws of the State of Ohio.

The Kettering Education Foundation is governed by a board of 14 trustees, compiled of community leaders and business associates, five ex-officio trustees, an honorary trustee and five trustees emeritus.

Since its inception, the Kettering Education Foundation has raised more than $150,000 and has awarded more then 250 grants.
