The Clintondale Educational Foundation was created in 1988 to generate and distribute financial and other resources to insuring that all Clintondale Schools’ students reach their potential. To that end, we cultivate a private donor base of individuals, businesses, and foundations. Funds raised cover the costs of classroom and extracurricular materials and projects, including AP exams, books, college visits, scholarships, musical instruments, microscopes, computers, art projects, and student competitions, that would otherwise go unfunded.
In addition, the foundation partners with individuals and groups who wish to share their legacy with Clintondale students and educators. The foundation is equipped to establish naming rights, planned/legacy giving, scholarship funds, and endowed funds and to tailor each to the donor’s vision and wishes.
Each October, the Clintondale Educational Foundation hosts it annual Grand Raffle Dinner “to raise funds for the Clintondale Community School District to support the processes for teachers to teach and for students to learn to expand their opportunities.”
Scholarships is one way that the Clintondale Educational Foundation continues to support the students’ path to post-secondary education. Each spring, the Foundation awards seven scholarships to graduating seniors from Clintondale High School.
