What We Do…In A Nutshell

Through the generous donations of individuals, businesses and charitable foundations in our community, we fund innovative programs and projects in the Carson City School District that are not normally fundable through the traditional education budget.

Here’s another way of looking at it (click here).

A Little History…

In 2015 a group of individuals from the community created a 501(c)3 non-profit 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’s leadership works to be a vehicle for community investment in innovative projects that traditional funding sources might not be able to reach.

As a result of the community’s generosity, from 2016 through 2023 the foundation has donated $146,000 for classroom projects, student aid, department projects, school projects, new teacher support, and the Jump Start Program. As of the Fall 2023 grant period, the foundation has donated $46,764 through the following programs (Click here for a full list of awardees)

  • Classroom Mini Grants – $1,300 (6 grants)
  • School-wide Grants – $10,000 (5 grants)
  • Jump Start College-readiness Program – $32,223.14

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 renewed in 2022 as “Empower Carson City 2027“.

Please take time to view the short video below to learn more about the Foundation and our work. Also, explore this website to learn more about what we have accomplished so far, how we achieve our goals, and how you can join us as a donor and champion of innovative education.
