The Davidson County Education Foundation (DCEF) is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to the enrichment of educational opportunities in Davidson County, NC. Our mission is to provide and support innovative programs that benefit the students of the Davidson County Public School System. DCEF was established in 1992 by local school supporters led by businessman Bernard H. Thomas who served as its first president. DCEF is an organization whose Board of Directors is comprised of local school supporters who volunteer their efforts on behalf of the students and staff of the Davidson County Public School System. Innovative programs include the Bernard H. Thomas Student Leadership Academy, STARS - Students Teaching and Reaching for Success Academy, Teacher Mini-Grant Program, Endowed Scholarships and Project Potential Scholarships. To support all of our programs, we sponsor an annual 5k walk/run, "RUN FRIENDS RUN", held in the fall on the beautiful campus of Davidson County Community College-Thomasville, NC. Mark your calendars to join us!
