Who We Are

The John de la Howe (JDLH) School Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) established to support the South Carolina Governor's School for Agriculture. The school is a state-funded, public, residential high school focused on providing a unique and challenging agricultural education program for 10th , 11th and 12th grade students. Our school, the first statewide program of its kind in the nation, will allow students to receive hands-on training in agriculture, agribusiness, forestry, land management, food science, and more. Our recent graduates have launched successful careers in agriculture and will be future industry leaders, solving the complex sustainability and conservation issues of our time.  

Foundation Mission

To provide support that will enable the students of the South Carolina Governor's School for Agriculture to receive a quality agricultural education.

Foundation Vision

We envision a future in which the Foundation has sufficient financial assets, including endowment funds, to meet the School's needs in the present as well as into the future.
