The School Board has endorsed establishment of the Sioux Falls Public Schools Education Foundation. An Advisory Board comprised of community members, parents, retired and current School District employees governs the Foundation, which is administered through the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation.
The mission of the Sioux Falls Public Schools Education Foundation is to enhance academic opportunities and achievement for early childhood through K-12 students in the Sioux Falls School District by providing educational opportunities not funded by public tax dollars. The Education Foundation provides a practical way for families, alumni, businesses, School District employees, and other concerned citizens to make a long-term investment in the quality of Sioux Falls’ public schools and, ultimately, the future of our community’s children.
The Foundation is tax exempt and gifts are tax deductible. Donations to the Education Foundation are invested for the long term. Each year only a portion of the fund balance is allocated to support and enhance education. The rest of the earnings are reinvested so that the fund is never depleted.
