School Foundation Value

What, you ask, is the value of a school foundation?
I’m glad you asked! The National School Foundation Association, of which our Foundation is a member, lists the following:
1. It builds communication between the school and its community.
2. It raises awareness of a school’s needs.
3. It increases academic and educational opportunities.
4. It prepares future school board members.
5. It adds another group of adults who can represent the school’s needs to the community.
6. It assists and supports the school’s administration and teachers.
7. It creates increased community involvement in school affairs.
8. It creates new grant opportunities from outside sources.
My biggest hope is that our Foundation will allow our students and teachers to be more innovative and more expansive in their thinking about what is possible for them. Creativity is often shut down in the face of “There’s no money for that.” What could they accomplish if they heard “I think we can help!” instead. MPW
