GRANTS TO DATE

The purpose of the Woodland Park Re-2 School District Foundation is to provide funding for activities that are beyond the scope of traditionally supported school district activities. We solicit donations, manage those funds and disburse them through a community-based granting process. 

Through continued community support, the Foundation has raised and dispersed $68,373 to our schools. Funds were acquired through fundraising opportunities such as our annual dinner, Fourth of July Strawberry Shortcake booth, as well as individual and directed donations. 

Funding of these projects enhances education opportunities for children, especially valuable in the current environment of declining school budgets.

Below, see a list of projects the Foundation and our supporters have funded.
