Our organization is governed by an Executive Board of experienced
business people committed to administering a first class professional

90% payout ratio or better by minimizing administrative expenses to at
most 10% of our donations.
Our charitable functions are managed by our Charitable Supervisory Board. The Board is made up of parents, teachers, students and others who are interested in making a difference in education. The Board's primary responsibilities include approving all national and local campaigns, awarding scholarships and grants and allocating 1+1 = More funds to further our charitable mission.
Front of the Class often seeks advice from third-parties on it's fundraising activities, website management and charitable mission. We would like to recognize these individuals by appointing them to our Advisory Board.
