I have recently joined the board of the Center Grove Education Foundation. It is a wonderful organization dedicated to raising funds to assist our school corporation in providing quality education and opportunities for all students and teachers. They are a dedicated and passionate group of individuals that put education as a priority for children. With all of the budget cuts in recent times, our organization becomes more important to maintain quality education through funding of materials, programs and grants. Our events not only serve to raise money for the cause but also to educate the community about our foundation and the needs of the schools. Everyone looking to find a charity that makes a direct impact on children and education should consider donating not only money but time to this organization.
I have worked with the Education Foundation as a volunteer web-designer and now as a board member. We work hard to raise funds to support our kids and classroom teachers.
The foundation hosts events during the year to raise money and awareness on issues surrounding the school community, such as school board candidate forums and Superintendent Search Forums.
