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

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.
