Franklin-Simpson Educational Excellence Foundation



The Franklin-Simpson Educational Excellence Foundation is an organization in Franklin, Kentucky, committed to increasing educational opportunities and the success of learners in Simpson County. 

The Foundation is a community-based, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization established in 1985. We encourage innovative instruction to meet the needs of all learners in the Franklin-Simpson community.  We award grants, donations, and scholarships to local educational programs based on innovation and need.


Our mission is to supplement existing educational opportunities through funding to educators and community organizations in order to facilitate effective learning. 

FSEEF’s goal is two-fold:  to continue providing funding to educational programs within our community and to serve as a key resource to help both individual and corporate contributors identify organizations and/or specific projects that would benefit from their charitable donations.


Our vision is to be the organization in Franklin and in Simpson County who can assist donors in directing their resources to support causes they care about.
