The Foundation is a registered IRS 501 (c )(3) organization. All contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Focus on Funding

Did you know?

  •  The Foundation awards $30,000 in scholarships annually to graduating seniors. This applies to both college-bound students and those pursuing a trade.

  • Up to $90,000 is applied to grants that support classroom learning in all three schools in all disciplines, and upgrades to technology that provide the best available tools.

  • The Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers who care deeply about our students and their learning opportunities. The Board meets quarterly to consider grant requests. Are you interested? Contact Executive Director Sara Niemeyer at for more information.Typical Annual Funding
