About Us

Helios Education Foundation is focused on creating opportunities for individuals in Arizona and Florida to succeed in postsecondary education by advancing the academic preparedness of all students and fostering a high-expectation, college-going culture. Through a decade of strategic partnership and investment, Helios has identified Early Grade Success, College and Career Readiness and Postsecondary Completion as the three most critical reform priorities in achieving our long-term goal.

As an engaged foundation, embedded in communities across both states, the Foundation is contributing its expertise and financial resources to better prepare students for college and career and to compete successfully in a global economy. The Foundation’s approach to reforming education systems in Arizona is built around four key categories: strategic investing, building and reforming systems, public and political will building and collaborating and convening.

Since 2006, Helios has invested close to $170 million in education-related programs and initiatives in Arizona and Florida.
