This foundation was formed by concerned parents in 1993 with the mission to "improve the quality of our children's education by providing supplemental resources to the University City public schools." It serves as a fundraising umbrella for three elementary, one middle and one high school. Funds are raised through two main events and five giving programs. Proceeds are distributed by a "rule of thirds" - giving to principals' discretionary funds, teacher-written grants and foundation-directed technology or focused projects affecting all five schools. Over $1.2M has been donated to the schools since our inception, vastly improving teacher morale and effectiveness.
