The Mission of Rockridge Schools Foundation is to provide a vehicle to enhance educational opportunities and support academic needs.
Our History: In 2013, the Rockridge Schools Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit, charitable organization was formed to provide a vehicle to enhance educational opportunities and support academic needs of students in the Rockridge School District.
Who We Are: The Foundation was established as an avenue for area residents, businesses and community stakeholders to make an investment into the future educational needs of our students. The Foundation is not intended to target just one effort, but designed to make a lasting impact for our current and future students.
What We Do: Our 501c3 status allows the Foundation to apply for various grants and resources on behalf of our students and teachers within the Rockridge School District. For example, a teacher has found an innovative way to teach students, but needs financial resources to make it happen. An application could be made to the foundation to help support that effort.
Why We Are Different: Separate from the Rockridge School District C.U.S.D. 300, the Rockridge Schools Foundation is charged to support and promote the success of the students within the School District. The Foundation is a resource, providing a means in which to access new sources of funding that were never available to the Rockridge School District, until now.
Donations can be made at the following Giving Levels: PLATINUM – $500+, GOLD – $250 – $499, SILVER – $100 – $249, BRONZE – $50 – $99, HONOR – up to $49. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made by check, planned giving or endowment. Click here for a Foundation Brochure.
