Why give private support for public education? Because someday you will need the students in our schools. The first grader who will become a firefighter. The middle school student who will become a veterinarian. Or the high school student attending the Medical Technical Academy with the goal of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
In Blaine County, we know that our children are our future. The Blaine County Education Foundation is focused on their success. It is a lasting investment with long-term dividends that never stop paying.
Your investment in public education in Blaine County ensures that our students have access to the best and brightest educators through programs which provide funds for project based learning activities and professional development to educators across grade levels and across subject areas.
Private funding ensures that our schools continue to be the great social equalizer, giving all students regardless of socioeconomic status the opportunity to thrive through the Can Do Fund.
And private funding gives educators the tools and confidence to try new programs, improve on what works, and bring new opportunities to their students through Mini-Grants and Education Enhancement Programs.
Donors who give to the Blaine County Education Foundation see the opportunity to make a direct difference in the lives of those who need it most. Their return on investment is measured by the success of our students, our teachers, and in turn, our community.
If you are an employee of the Blaine County School District, you can contribute automatic monthly donations to the school or program of your choice, through our Employee Payroll Deduction Program.
We invite you to see the future through the eyes of a child and join us in making a difference now. Together we have a global vision for public education.
