The Waterford Foundation, established in 1984, is proud to proclaim it has an endowment just over $1,000,000. Foundation trustees, volunteers, and patrons have raised well over a million dollars and have funded many worthy projects within Waterford School District.
The Foundation exists to promote and recognize excellence in teaching and learning. The trustees serve with no compensation or perks, receiving only the satisfaction of public service. In fact, trustees dig deep in their pockets to help fund teacher and student recognition events such as:
- Grant program for Waterford School District Staff
- Select Fifty for High School Seniors
- Scholarships for High School Seniors
- Outstanding Teacher of the Year Award and Reception
Funding for projects, ranging from district wide music and arts programs to modestly budgeted classroom literacy activities, are also provided by the Foundation. The Foundation's support is meant to supplement and complement Waterford School District funding, not to supplant it.
