Educational Foundation

Flowing Wells Educational Foundation creates a dynamic source of community support for Flowing Wells School District projects and programs. The Foundation opens doors for the District to access funds that would otherwise be unattainable. These funds include donations and matching funds from the business and professional community, donations from clubs, organizations, and individuals, and grants from local, state, and federal agencies.

The Foundation raises funds by accepting donations, writing grants, and sponsoring our annual carnival, Festival Under the Stars.  Monies earned and obtained by the Foundation are used to fund school and education related projects, specifically, mini-grants for teachers to use directly in their classrooms, and scholarships for underprivileged Flowing Wells students attending college.  In addition, our foundation funds various other classroom, department, grade level, school, or district-wide projects.

The Foundation enthusiastically welcomes all persons interested in the welfare of students and families of the Flowing Wells School District to participate.

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to the Flowing Wells Educational Foundation, please send your check to Flowing Wells Educational Foundation c/o Flowing Wells School District 1556 W. Prince Road, Tucson, AZ 85705.
