    Our Mission

    The Foundation’s mission is to provide funds to enhance the standard curriculum and as such does not provide funding for regular classroom activities or expenses that are considered part of normal classroom operation. Funding is not provided for salaries for school personnel, support of extracurricular activities, activities that are already supported by booster clubs, or for camps or seminars for students. Classroom sets of computers, building improvement projects, furniture, landscaping, or projects that require multi-year funding are not normally funded.


    Our funding priorities are to assist in:

    • Providing creative, inspiring, and fun learning experiences in support of the curriculum, which offers students opportunities to expand their knowledge or understanding of a subject.
    • Piloting innovative educational opportunities.
    • Providing school-wide educational assemblies that enriches students’ learning experience.
    • Providing funding for projects in partnerships with Danville Community Consolidated School District 118 consistent with these guidelines.
