Why Should I Contribute?
Trust Fund Provides for Students
A recent grant of $2,500 was awarded to the Eau Claire School District Homeless Program to provide transportation for student who are homeless and living in temporary shelters outside of their school’s territory. This grant ensures that as children experience homelessness and have to move, they remain in the same school and experience some stability in their lives.
Sarah French, Executive Director of the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation, writes:
Please accept our sincere thanks for your recent donation to the ECPSF Operations Fund. Every gift that the Foundation receives has an important and positive impact on the students, staff, and faculty in the Eau Claire Area School District.
In these times of fiscal constraint, our schools face many additional challenges. Gifts to the Foundation go directly to support some of the greatest needs and value added projects, or they become part of a growing endowment that will support now and long into the future.
“Thank you for your very generous grant supporting our kids in the greatest need. What a wonderful you are having. Thank you!”
