The Education Foundation strives to meet the needs of our diverse community, helping all students to achieve their full potential. This would not be possible without generous donors like you. With your help, the District can continue to provide an excellent and enriching public education for every student in our 21 elementary and middle schools.

Your financial contributions directly benefit the programs that we fund. That financial support also aids our pursuit of corporate partnerships and foundation donations.

The full support of our parent, teacher and staff communities demonstrates to business partners and organizations that their money funds programs that will be well-received and appreciated by the community. Our goal is 100% participation of our parent, teacher and staff communities.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation of $250. Every dollar counts and will make a difference.
