Giving Circles

Every child deserves the best public education possible. The Ed Foundation raises funds to ensure all students have well-rounded classroom experiences that successfully position them for their future.

We proudly acknowledge the individuals, organizations and foundations that join us in this effort with gifts of $2,500 or more as members of the Superintendent’s Circle or Leadership Circle. Learn about the benefits of Superintendent’s Circle or Leadership Circle membership or join today by donating online.
