Cordell Academic Foundation

Cordell Public School Academic Foundation



The Cordell Public School Academic Foundation endowment fund was established in January 1990.

Recognizing the national movement toward excellence in education, the Cordell Public School Academic Foundation joins foundations in other progressive communities in establishing a channel for private funds to enrich public education.

These funds are kept in the Foundation’s accounts and do not become a part of the general fund of the Board of Education, nor are they used for basic salary or benefit expenses.  The Foundation aims for equitable distribution across the school district to meet presented needs.

Any grant money not used by the teacher reverts back to the Foundation.


Why Contribute?

Achievement of extraordinary goals requires dedication of extraordinary means.  You can make a difference in education through your donation.

By contributing to the Cordell Public School Academic Foundation, you can directly assist quality educational projects above and beyond those possible from regular academic funding of the county and state.

Your contribution stays in Cordell.  It is used to directly benefit our local students.  And it is tax-deductible.


What is the Purpose?

The Cordell Academic Foundation is based on the principle that as the education of children and youth of a     community are enhanced, the quality of life for all citizens is made better.  The Foundation’s philosophy is that as resources are made available, the educational opportunities for students are enriched.  With the benefit of additional funding from donations made through the foundation, academic experiences can be provided that might otherwise be unattainable within the confines of the regular school budget. 

All kinds of programs are funded through the Foundation:  from special classroom projects in science to needed supplies in the classroom; from academic fairs to innovative programs in mathematics.

The possibilities are endless.  Won’t you contribute today?


How Can You Help?

When you make a contribution, your donation will be used to fund educational projects during the current year.  Interest from the endowment fund is also used for grants to teachers, which are made annually to maintain the commitment to excellence present in Cordell Public Schools.

High levels of student achievement will be fostered through enrichment programs and activities.

Teachers will be empowered to express their creativity through innovative teaching techniques.
