Promote communication by moving from public understanding to public engagement. 

The Eagle Foundation promotes open dialogue about the state of our schools and neighborhoods. We aim to provide a common hub to disseminate information for and about Kennedy and the Richmond community – in a spirit of co-creation and co-ownership through involvement, investment, and policy.


Develop partnerships to support neighborhood schools as part of the greater Richmond community.

Community partnerships make schools richer by offering valuable experiences that support the efforts of the classroom. Partners learn from and with students on activities focused on real social challenges thus driving innovations in community sustainability. We believe youth raised in a healthy environment of collaboration will grow up to be community stewards themselves.


Support Public education’s programmatic needs and engage in community Building. volunteerism is a tool that we Use to measure impact.

By offering volunteer assistance and supporting educational programming that taps into community partnerships we enhance curricular, extra-curricular, and real-world experiences for Richmond students and teachers. In periods of shrinking public spending, programmatic and volunteerism needs can ensure a return on investment through short-term transactional activities and longer-term transformation activities. Visit our Programs page to review our program offerings and volunteer needs.

Maintain the Eagle Foundation as A sustainable community organization, regardless of a city or state’s model of educational culture.

The Eagle Foundation is a neighborhood organization dedicated to Kennedy High School, its family of neighborhood schools, and its community. To stay mission & vision forward, we connect students, staff, parents, alumni, civic leaders, and businesses, so that together, as community members, we can ensure the long-term viability of our schools and neighborhoods. Cities have developed different models of educational culture due to their different historic, fiscal, and geographic contexts. Some have concentrated on buildings others on academies, and others on programmatic offerings guided by partnerships. Cities may also vary in the importance they attach to various schools based on political climate or issues. Regardless of the city’s approach, we see our role as a collective of local stakeholders to be facilitating a unified community that is able to attract and retain equity at all levels of the educational process.
