Fraser Educational Foundation
What is the Fraser Educational Foundation?
The Fraser Educational Foundation is a non-profit, tax-deductible organization. The objective of the foundation is to provide funding that will enhance teacher creativity, student enrichment, and community involvement through activities that go beyond the scope of normally funded school budgets and responsibilities. Typically the basis and intent of any educational foundation are to provide non-traditional funding for non-traditional projects, activities and classroom materials.
The foundation supports the schools in our district through grants and mini-grants. The money is raised through donations from teachers, individuals, and local businesses as well as a variety of fundraisers during the school year. During the last 20 years, the Fraser Educational Foundation has averaged $8,000 in grants annually.
Who Does the Foundation Help?
The grant program supports funding for all levels (DK-12). Some examples of recent projects the foundation has supported include grants for the purchase of books, supplemental education programs and establishing MakerSpaces.
