Why Should I Contribute

The Foundation provides opportunities for employers and students that are not provided for by public tax dollars. Foundations are able to offer increased learning opportunities and educational experiences that a school district may not ordinarily fund or had to discontinue funding. The Foundation supports district goals and enhances the learning experience in the classroom and beyond. Your support is imperative to the success and development of the Foundation.
