The SPCS Foundation provides avenues where individuals, organizations, and businesses can help support the school system through tax-deductible contributions. We use these monies to supplement our programs and provide for the unfunded needs of our educational community.
The Foundation is a legally incorporated and non-profit organization established in accordance with state and federal tax guidelines.
You Can Make a Difference
Each year, public schools face the difficult task of building their educational programs solely on local property taxes and limited state funds. As our district grows, so do the needs of the student, staff, and community. Unfortunately, limitations of tax funds have a direct impact on educational growth within the community. We need your help to lift these limitations.
Here's how supporting individuals and organizations have provided financial support to the Foundation:
- Cash or securities gifts
- Memorial gifts or scholarships honoring relatives or friends
- Deferred gifts through bequests, trusts, or life insurance policies
- Gifts designed to support a particular program
Goals and Objectives
The goals and objectives of the SPCS Foundation are very simple. We want to improve educational opportunities within the district by providing additional resources for a variety of academic, vocational, and extracurricular programs. These programs directly benefit students, faculty, and the community.
Here's how the Foundation helps:
- Monetary awards to recognize meritorious instruction
- Student scholarships
- Promotion of education technology
- Small grants for innovative instructional opportunities
- Promotion of community educational opportunities
- Career development programs
- Stimulate programs or projects in the humanities
