To support Union Public Schools, its vision and the students it serves.
The Union Schools Education Foundation is an exclusively educational and charitable, non-profit corporation. Separate and apart from Union Public Schools, the Foundation maintains its own integrity while working closely with the District. Tax-exempt donations from individuals, corporations and foundations are used solely for the benefit of our students and teachers for projects that would otherwise go unfunded.
The Union Schools Education Foundation was organized in 1991 by Union District patrons and administrators who were dedicated to making investments in education and enhancing the quality of life in our community and state.
Why does Union need a Foundation?
In recent years, public funding for Union Public Schools has been enough to cover the basics: salaries, building costs and some classroom supplies. What's lost? The ability to implement innovative programs and ideas from teachers, parents and students due to lack of funding. That's why your help is so important. Support of the Foundation is an investment in our children, our schools and our community.
While Union Public Schools depends on public funding for basic district operations, implementing innovative programs and ideas often require additional resources. The Foundation is instrumental in providing private contributions and funding for creative programs as well as recognition for our teachers and their impact on students.
