1. Raising Funds
Funding is raised from community citizens, alumni of district schools, local business and larger foundations that support public education. We will run an annual campaign to raise money for a general fund, as well as targeted campaigns to support specific projects as they are identified. Donated monies can be directed to specific projects or into the general fund per the donor’s choice.
2. Project Proposals
The Foundation will consider any proposal that supports the objectives described in the Foundation’s mission. Projects may aim to introduce something completely new or provide enhancements to a current program. Projects may also include educational programs that necessitate costs related to faculty or staff.
3. How Programs Are Considered and Funded
The Foundation will regularly collaborate with the District (Superintendent of Curriculum and Department Coordinators) to identify programs with educational merit. This joint effort will ensure that programs can be implemented within the curriculum, as well as sustained through the annual school budget and future funding commitments. After examining the recommendations of the District, the Foundation Board then determines which grant or projects to fund. The number of projects undertaken and grants awarded each year will vary. The Foundation Board may directly solicit funding requests based on their own outreach and research.
Grants approved by the Foundation Board are submitted to the Superintendent who refers them to the Board of Education for consideration and acceptance of program and/or donation.
