How is the Foundation different?
We are fortunate to live in a community unified in the belief that excellence in education and the success of our schools, teachers, and students is paramount.
To that end, our schools enjoy the benefit of having several support organizations to help bridge the gap beyond District funding. These organizations support our schools in different ways to help ensure growth through enrichment opportunities and enhanced experiences for staff and students.
The Foundation is uniquely equipped to provide funding to the District throughout the school year and to respond quickly to urgent grant requests. We also provide long-term financial security to ensure resources are available today and for future generations.
The Foundation is grateful for the generosity of alumni worldwide, community, and businesses who support our campaigns and events to ensure the continued success of our schools today and tomorrow. They are proof that together we are greater than the sum of our parts.
