Message from the President

November 23, 2016

Dear Friend of Education,

Thank you for your previous support of the Taylorville Public Schools Foundation, and the board of directors and I are asking for your same support this year.

The theme for this year’s Year-end appeal letter is, “Our growth continues because of your commitment”.  With school budgets continuing to be in crisis, with little room for supplementing the basic supplies or programs that inspire character and community involvement, the foundation supports the district with much needed grants each year.  The 2015-2016 Annual Report is attached.

Just imagine if every household and business receiving this year-end appeal will send a minimum donation of $25, as a year-end gift, it will greatly enhance our ability to fund these worthwhile grants.

As the Foundation continues its chartered task, “ enhance our public schools by providing additional resources to motivate and encourage educational excellence,” we need the community’s support.

As a 501(c) 3 charitable corporation, your gift is tax deductible.  Your check can be made to, “TSPF,” and returned in the enclosed envelope.  You can donate online at

By responding to this appeal, you will be helping a Taylorville Public School teacher!

With warmest wishes for a joy-filled holiday season,

Alta Himstedt
