Foundation Mission

The Buckeye Education Foundation is dedicated to the gathering and disbursing funds to the Buckeye Local School District to support activities that enhance, enrich and supplement instructional opportunities for school district learners consistent with the school district statement of mission.

By attracting private donations from citizens and the business community, the Foundation can enhance and supplement programs and provide extended educational opportunities for students and staff. The “educational extras” can make the critical difference between a very good school system and an excellent one.

The Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2003 and is directed by a volunteer board of trustees, private citizens that serve without pay. The trustees operate independently from the Buckeye Board of Education and are responsible for determining guidelines for selecting projects and dispersing funds.
