Why A Foundation?

Why support a School District Foundation? Welcome to the national movement to increase the resources available to students in PreK-12 public education. Become part of the education foundation movement which is creating life changing opportunities for students in public education across the U.S. Nearby schools districts such as Mason, Sycamore, Wyoming, Finneytown and Princeton are among the hundreds of districts  that already have foundations which are contributing to the success of students in those districts. (From the National School Foundation Association (NSFA)).

  • Elementary and secondary school administrators and teachers need or desire more funding to do a more effective job educating children.
  • Communities across the US are made up of an aging populace and are demonstrating less interest in continued tax increases to support education..
  • $41 billion was donated to education in the US in 2006, the second largest recipient category (behind religion) of philanthropic donations in the US.
  • “Giving USA” reports that many major donors who give to education are switching their financial support and focus from college and universities to elementary and secondary schools.
  • Many schools want to enhance, improve and expand the financial performance of their foundation, but have no consistent realistic resources available for immediate help.
  • Many schools are beginning to understand what colleges and universities have known for decades, there are many individuals who wish to support education and a foundation is an excellent way to begin to develop this stream of philanthropy.

With these facts in mind, we believe school foundation growth and development is vitally important. Join us in strengthening our children’s educational opportunities.
