About the J.Y. Joyner Foundation

Our Foundation

The Foundation raises money and prioritizes expenditures to benefit Joyner students, teachers, and the school as a whole. We consider both on-going and new needs in deciding how to allocate funds.

The goal of the Foundation is to ensure that J.Y. Joyner will continue to have the resources to deliver exceptional education opportunities to its students. The Foundation provides a way for parents and friends of J.Y. Joyner to maintain funding to attract and retain talented educators and enhance International Baccalaureate educational programs at J.Y. Joyner.

Our Program

In the 2019-2020 school year, we raised $95,000! The money raised each year helps cover teacher funding in the area with the greatest need. One year it may fully fund a Spanish teacher and a portion of a technology teacher, while another year it may shift to a different area.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support of the J.Y. Joyner Foundation. Our curriculum and educators help make J.Y. Joyner a very special IB Spanish magnet school. Your support will continue to protect the integrity of the curriculum of J.Y. Joyner by ensuring that we can afford our talented teachers.

Our Leadership

The Foundation is managed by an elected Board of Directors of 3 voting members, and as non voting members, the school principal and a current PTA officer. The current parents are identified and recruited from the school community and elected to two-year terms.
