The Franklin Foundation’s efforts support American businesses. Ensuring the availability of an educated workforce should be a priority for any business looking to compete in the ever-expanding global market. Other countries are making investments in their public education system that we are not. The Franklin Foundation is working to create a system that supports public education and results in developing a highly skilled and innovative American workforce. But we need your help.
American capitalism's best ally is a strong education infrastructure. Public schools provide the vast majority of education to our population and need to be protected from those who believe education should be a privilege rather than a right. Our fight to protect our public school infrastructure is a struggle to ensure the availability of future generations of natural innovators, who challenge the status-quo and produce groundbreaking products and services that move our nation forward. By joining us in this fight, your organization is taking the lead and standing up for the infrastructure that educated the vast majority of us.

The Franklin Foundation for Innovation
The Franklin Foundation is reinventing the idea of philanthrocapitalism – that idea that the public good can be leveraged to produce an infrastructure fertile for business to grow. The fact is, American businesses need an educated workforce to survive in the long-run. Our fight will help ensure every generation has access to high-quality public schools, so their education is not up to chance or dependent upon their wealth.
Businesses are in a critical position to aid the Foundation in achieving its mission of protecting American Innovation and our public education infrastructure. There are many ways to help, and we hope you’ll choose more than one.
