Skyline School Foundation: Funding Our Children's Future

Skyline School Foundation: Funding Our Children's Future

  • Keep class sizes small

        -   Physical Education

        -   Language enrichment

What is the Skyline School Foundation?
We are parent volunteers and donors joining together to improve education at Skyline School.

How does the Foundation Improve Education?
The foundation is the only parent organization that can directly fund additional staffing for Skyline School. We help pay for needed educators when public funding falls short.  The first $10k raised is 100% dedicated to Skyline School. Two-thirds of additional funds raised stays at Skyline School, while the remaining third goes to our umbrella organization, All Hands Raised (
www.allhandsraised.org ), where it is used to fund education improvements district-wide. An  inspiring video on just how this benefits our community is available here The PPS Foundation: One District. All In.

What has the Foundation been able to do in the past?
The Skyline School Foundation became active in 2001-02 and has been continuously providing for additional school staff. Skyline’s foundation has one of the highest per-capita fund raising results in the district thanks to the help of so many donors and volunteers.

How does the Foundation raise the funds to do this?
All sorts of individual donors make tax-deductible donations (and many local employers match these donations!)  See the donation information further below if you’d like to help out. In addition, foundation volunteers organize a variety of fundraisers throughout the year. Our biggest fundraiser is the Annual School Auction in March. Events like the Soccer and Golf Tournaments, Family Nights Out, Wine Tasting as well as local business sponsors and those employer matching funds play a critical role as well.

How can I help the Foundation improve education at Skyline School?

1.     Donate:  For one-time or regular contributions you can contribute online here  https://allhandsraised.org/donate/  

IMPORTANT: Select Skyline School & check with your employer to see if they offer matching donation funds!

2.       Participate.  Volunteer or come to any of our meetings! Foundation meetings will alternate between being before or after the monthly PTA meetings. If you can’t make the meetings, we’d love to have volunteers help with our fundraisers, or put your creativity to work suggesting new fundraisers or improvements to existing events. Contact any of the listed foundation officers for opportunities to help keep Skyline School a great place to learn!
