Please Help! Education is an Investment in the Future.
How Does the Foundation Invest in Educational Excellence?
The Foundation has 2 major funds: a general fund and a scholarship fund.
If I Make a Donation, How Will My Donation Be Used?
If you do not specify where you would like your donation to go, it will automatically be invested in our general fund. The primary objective of the general fund is to support our Grant Program.
Funds raised by the Foundation go toward classroom grants. Teachers and staff members apply annually for grant funding for innovative projects and programs in their classrooms. In many cases, these grants have broad impact across grade levels and within school buildings. The Foundation awards $6000 annually with a longer range goal of awarding $20,000. We have funded enriching projects and programs as diverse as Solar/Wind Energy Kits, Lego League Teams (an international robotics program), AHS Link Crew (a transition program for students entering 9th grade), Marine Biology Aquaria, and Music Composition.
The Arlington Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization; all donations are tax-deductible.
