  • Grew the Foundation endowment to $1,560,000
  • Funded 92 innovation grants or 40% of the 226 grant requests
  • Directly impacted 25% of Springdale students, averaging 5,500 per year

Unmet Needs in the Schools

Whereas the accomplishments the Foundation achieved are laudable, there is still a significant amount of work to do. The top three funding priorities include:

  • Fully fund double the number of innovation grants
  • Fund the remaining 60% of grant requests received
  • Reach the remaining 75% of Springdale students and classrooms with innovation grants
