The Foundation’s Excellence Fund is the cornerstone of our programming. It provides backing for critical unfunded needs in our schools and sustains our organization. The fund is supported by private donations from individuals, businesses and community organizations. Each year the ICCSD Foundation awards grants for projects not possible within the district budget. These grants reach every level of learning and every grade at every school to offer unique learning opportunities to our students. Past grants have funded literacy materials and classroom technology, as well as popular sustaining programs like Visiting Author, Symphony Goes to School, and School of the Wild.
