Morris Public Schools Foundation
About The Foundation
A group of parents, alumni and community members working together with West Central Initiative to form a foundation to preserve, promote and enhance the quality of education in the Morris Public School and community. The Advisory Committee includes representatives from alumni, the school, past faculty and parents who all believe Morris Area Schools have the unique advantage of offering the students an exemplary education. With your help and support, we will not only maintain but enhance the educational opportunities for Morris Area students. The Morris Area Public School has a long and proud history of excellence. The foundation was created to pursue 501(c)(3) non-profit funding to assure the continuation of that tradition of excellence.
The Morris Area Public Schools Foundation includes 5 sub-accounts. Donations can be designated to a particular fund. If no designation is made, the donation will go to the Universal Fund.
The Universal Fund gives the Advisory Committee the most flexibility in designating funds where most needed.
Donations help provide additional classroom curriculum and continuously improve important programs such as Library, Band, and Choir.
Dollars for Scholars
Dollars for Scholars was organized locally in 1995 by a group of community members to provide scholarships to Morris Area seniors. Over $180,000 have been awarded during this time. Dollars for Scholars has maintained an affiliation with the national organization for Scholarship America for possible matching awards from participating post secondary schools. Our original goal has been to provide scholarships to all qualified graduating seniors and we are still striving to reach this goal.
This is the gift that keeps on giving. The principal is left untouched, while the interest will provide for grants and other needs.
Technology, Equipment & Capital Improvement Fund
Morris Area Public Schools has wonderful technology, but what school couldn’t use updates in some areas? This fund will allow our school to keep up with changes and be on the cutting edge.
