Field of Interest
Donate Excellence in Education Fund
The Siouxland Community Foundation strongly believes that our children are the future and that quality education is of paramount importance to their success. To that end, the Foundation led fundraising efforts to establish a fund known as the Excellence in Education Endowment Fund. Mini-grants are awarded from income generated by the Fund to provide financial resources to teachers typically not available through traditional school or district sources. Recognizing that teachers are pivotal in our children’s education, mini-grants for innovative classroom projects benefit students directly by providing enhanced educational opportunities. The purpose of the program is to assist teachers by providing grants for innovative projects that improve student learning and make a positive, long-term impact in the classroom.
