Education Foundation

The 27J Education Foundation is dedicated to preserving, supporting, and improving the educational opportunities within the community.

About Us

For over 20 years, the goal of our foundation has been to develop a community partnership among schools, businesses and individuals. The 27J Education Foundation board of directors is an all-volunteer group represented by community members, business owners, and educators who are dedicated to supporting the educational experience for students, teachers, and classrooms within 27J Schools. The Foundation does not employ any staff members, which allows the board to use every dollar raised toward supporting students and teachers throughout the district. 

The 27J Education Foundation provides funding that furthers the pursuit of education of students and educators within the 27J School District. These funds are made available through three programs (student scholarships, teacher scholarships, and classroom grants).
