Who We Are

Mission Statement

The mission of the Kingsport City Schools (KCS) Education Foundation is to support the students, employees and programs of Kingsport City Schools and to achieve and maintain a world-class school district. We will do this by providing a supplemental source of revenue for projects and initiatives not directly funded through tax dollars from the State of Tennessee or provided in the KCS district budget.

Vision Statement

Our desired future is to inspire, cultivate and impact the students and community of Kingsport, Tennessee.
