Welcome to the Carson City Schools Foundation

Applications for the Fall 2022 academic period will be accepted from Monday, Sept 26th, 2022 through Tuesday, November 8th, 2022. All awards will be announced Friday, December 9th.

In 2015 a group of individuals from the community came together to form a 501(c)3 foundation to support the Carson City School District’s goal of increasing student achievement through community philanthropic investment and involvement.  Serving at the pleasure of the superintendent and the school board, The Carson City Schools Foundation leadership works to be a vehicle for community investment in education that traditional funding sources might not be able to reach.

As a result of the community’s generosity, from 2015 through 2021 the foundation has donated $116,964.28 for classroom projects, student aid, department projects, school projects, new teacher support, and the Jump Start Program. For the 2021-2022 academic year the foundation donated $30,742.84 through the following programs.

  • Mike Jackson Scholarship to a graduating senior pursuing STEM – $1,100
  • Student Aid Grants – $300
  • Mini Grants – $1,400
  • Department Grants – $10,500
  • New Teacher Grants (Cathy Bober memorial) – $500
  • Jump Start Program – $16,992.84

This project is one of the many results of the “Empower Carson City 2017″ Strategic Plan – a five-year strategic plan built by the community for creating extraordinary schools, and now renewed as “Empower Carson City 2022“.
