Fund a Need

Fund a Need

Your Gift Can Directly Support a Classroom


The Fund a Need program uniquely connects our generous community with teachers and students in need. Teachers submit proposals for needs in their classrooms that tax dollars can’t cover—these needs can range from:

  • New books for the classroom
  • Field trip to the planetarium
  • Musical instruments
  • Fees to participate in a regional robotics competition
  • And so much more 

Next, we post the needs online so donors can give to our schools' areas of greatest need. Once you've donated, you can share and help spread the word. You can directly impact the experience of students and their teachers by donating today. 

While the Foundation would like to see every Fund-a-Need proposal fully funded, occasionally, a proposal expires with partial funding. In these cases, donations will be applied to similar Fund-a-Need proposals at the same school or the school's Fund for Excellence.
