Support New Haven Schools Foundation
Submitted By New Haven Unified School District
The New Haven Schools Foundation (NHSF) is a non-profit 501(c)3 foundation dedicated to supporting New Haven schools. The Foundation's mission is to partner with parents, teachers and other District employees, as well as with others in the New Haven community, to raise money for scholarships, classroom grants and co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
"Innovations in Education," a classroom grant program provides money to teachers for special projects that enhance the educational experience, and Project Enrichment, supporting co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The Foundation's Pathways to Success program awarded more than $70,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors in June of 2013.
Over the past two years, in response to state budget cuts that threatened the future of after-school activities in the District, the Foundation partnered with the New Haven Boosters to fund grants totaling $200,000 to help offset cuts in athletics, band and color guard, forensics and other activities.
This year, the Foundation continues its commitment to student success by raising funds to provide grants for classroom innovation and enrichment programs and projects, and student scholarships.
