Elkhart Education Foundation
Elkhart Education Foundation serves the Elkhart community as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt philanthropic organization of citizens who share the common vision of encouraging innovative educational opportunities and enhancing education activities, not funded by tax dollars, while promoting educational excellence for all.
- The Foundation does not attempt to replace lost state funding, nor does it attempt to take the place of the district’s operating budget. Given the level of funding required to educate students, the foundation can expect only to provide funds for those projects, activities and initiatives that go beyond the normal classroom experience. Such initiatives provide enrichment programs to enhance the educational effort. Funds provided by the Foundation will directly benefit students in the local district.
- Donations will remain in the school district. This investment in local education and student success benefits the entire community and eventually all of us.
- Funds will be used to support the mission of the local school district through educational programs and incentives for students and staff. To ensure continued funding, the Foundation will also establish and fund an endowment.
The Elkhart Education Foundation ignites the power of community, connects generous hearts with education, and provides the resources needed for EVERY child to excel inside and outside of the classroom through extraordinary learning experiences.
To provide new and innovative sources of funding to support & enhance the school district’s educational plan. EEF believes that the development of basic skills for each student is critical for the future success of Elkhart Community businesses, civic organizations, and the local economy. By collaborating today towards this common mission, Elkhart will be strengthened for a better tomorrow.
