For the past 21 years, the Evergreen School District Foundation (ESDF) has strived to meet the needs of the students and staff of the Evergreen Public Schools (EPS), through innovative programs, scholarship and grants which require support beyond the funding that EPS receives. For too many of our children, poverty presents barriers to learning, and the need is increasing along with the population. More than half of the EPS students qualify for free or reduced-priced meals, a federal indicator of poverty.
ESDF works in partnership with local businesses and individual donors who share the passion of providing every student a quality education. This continuum of education, local job placement, and development of responsible citizens comes full circle, building a stronger and more sustainable local community. Primary revenue sources are individual donations, the annual auction and other fundraising events. Every dollar raised directly impacts the number of students and programs provided. Programs supported by these generous donations include basic student, teacher and classroom needs, innovative educational initiatives, enrichment activities, connecting students, schools and the community through targeted programs and other services that support students and education.
Thank you for supporting the Evergreen School District Foundation in our mission to remove barriers so our students come to school healthy, happy and ready to learn. We need the support of the people in our community, people like you, coming together to help make a difference.
