Educational Endowment

The Educational Endowment program was developed by the Foundation as a means of investing donations with the earnings used to fund projects that enhance programs and facilities in the Redwood Area School District. Funds are made available annually through a grant process to school district staff. Requests must meet the intent of the Educational Endowment Program with priority given to funds requests that meet the following criteria: 

  • Enhances the learning experience of a number of students.
  • Provides funding for items which are not eligible as a direct district appropriation
  • Has a positive educational impact for students over an extended period of time
