The Prairie School Foundation, established in 1981 is a non- profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of our students and making a difference in their Prairie education. The mission of the Prairie School Foundation is Working Together for a Better Tomorrow.
The Prairie School Foundation is chartered by the State of Iowa and is governed by a 35 member volunteer board. As a not for profit organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service, the Foundation solicit and received tax-deductible gifts. These funds are managed for the benefit of the school district.
By sharing the goal, success for all, the Foundation actively works as a partner with the school district to identify needs, develop initiatives, and channel resources toward programs to help enhance academic achievement for all students.
Supporting the Foundation is the most tangible way to demonstrate your personal commitment to Prairie, its students, teachers and programs. Foundation support is absolutely vital to Prairie’s quality and Foundation dollars play a key role in our children’s education. Your heartfelt participation is what sets College Community Schools apart from the rest.
