To the Risk Takers, We Say Thank You
Message from our Founding Chairman
One of our fundamental beliefs at Helios is that we will achieve our mission through partnership and collaboration. Our beliefs aren’t just words on paper - they reflect, very tangibly, the way Helios does business. We have learned since we began investing in education in 2006 that collaboration is essential to improving educational outcomes for the students about whom we are most passionate.
Since inception, Helios has invested close to $190 million in Early Grade Success, College and Career Readiness, Postsecondary Completion, Innovative initiatives, and other charitable contributions toward education in Arizona and Florida. All of these investments have involved our engagement with like-minded organizations who have become beacons in their communities for educational equity, system reform, and improved academic outcomes.
While financial resources play an important role in moving the needle forward in education, so does the intellectual capital exchanged between Helios and its partners as we tackle complex issues. Helios has never been just a checkbook in the world of education reform. We have been an actively engaged partner seeking innovative solutions to education’s most pressing problems.
