Palisades Elementary Foundation
The Palisades Elementary Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose goal is to improve the quality of the children’s education at Palisades Elementary through donations and fundraising activities.
The Foundation We uses its funds to supply the students and teachers with resources that they might not otherwise be able to obtain due to budget constraints. We work closely with the school administration and PTA to ensure that donations are specifically targeted to have maximum impact where they are most needed.
Since its formation in 2018, the Foundation has purchased 32 Chromebooks and two charging stations! In early 2020 we organized a donation drive (and the community came out in force) to help stock the new Innovation Lab with tools, supplies and furniture, and
purchased a new Knex set. The Foundation also scored the school’s first ever soccer goals. That last purchase was initiated by some industrious students donating their lemonade stand money. Soon we will be providing the school with much-needed document cameras, and we are working toward furnishing the art and music room among other targets.
The Foundation’s funding comes from a number of sources, including direct donations, AmazonSmile, Kroger Community Rewards, dining and shopping events, Halloween candy
buy-backs, auctions, bake sales, corporate matching, etc.
We’re humbled by our community and the strong support they’ve given. We also know there’s a long road ahead. We are always looking for more volunteers to help us raise money -- it is both fun and rewarding. Please visitour website to find out how to get involved or donate.
