THE WASHINGTON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT FOUNDATION is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that supports the students of Washington County by providing resources required for a quality education that are not provided through traditional funding sources. The Foundation carefully manages and disperses tax-deductible donations to local schools in the form of scholarships, financial grants, equipment, and supplies. Foundation Officers welcome the opportunity to discuss educational enrichment ideas and also provide estate- planning information.
INCREASING COMMUNITY & BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS AND SUPPORTING STUDENTS is a major goal of the Foundation. The Dixie Power Kite Festival is recognized as one of our most valued partnerships. The Festival provides an excellent opportunity to encourage our students to read and to involve children and their families in a great family outing at the Kite Festival. Through a student’s participation in the reading program, he or she is awarded a top quality nylon kite or a reading book at the Festival. Elementary schools are given an opportunity for their own school to win additional dollars through reading and participation at the Kite Festival to help support various programs that are not traditionally funded.
