Thanks to ALLTEACHERS, PRINCIPALS AND OTHER STAFF OF the Pell City Schools system who wrote grants for this school year. We had 229 total grants submitted.
The Foundation was established to March, 1992, by Pell City leaders in business, education, and community development. They envisioned a partnership among local businesses, organizations, and individuals that would promote excellence in education.
The Foundation is a means for all citizens to impact and enhance the educational experience in our youth. A concerted, community-wide effort is essential to The Foundation's success.
The Foundation supports Pell City schools primarily through educational grants. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to local educators to provide funding for specific needs. The purpose of the grant program is to enrich education by encouraging and supporting improved educational opportunities and creative teaching. The Board of Directors reviews and approves grant requests each fall.
The Board of Directors of the Foundation is an autonomous board governed by a 17-member Board of Directors which includes two non-voting members. Members of the Board are community leaders who have demonstrated concern and love for our youth as well as the vision, dedication, and enthusiasm required to make a positive contribution to our schools. They direct the foundation in raising funds, and they manage those funds to provide maximum opportunities for educational excellence in Pell City's schools.
