The Education Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that was established in 1991 through the good efforts of the School District and dedicated friends in the community. Its purpose is to attract private monies to fund and advance special innovative educational projects/programs that would not normally be supported by tax dollars. A community Board of Trustees governs the Foundation’s activities. Since its inception, over $200,000 has been contributed to the Educational Foundation. Funding for the foundation has been achieved through private and corporate donations, as well as through annual fundraising events including dinner dances, an annual golf outing, and family festivals. Generous community support has enabled the Foundation to fund a variety of educational programs and enhancements.
