Endowment Fund

This fund was established to secure funding for strategic long-term initiatives critical to the health of the district and to its ability to provide an excellent educational experience for its students.  Our State's changing economic landscape required forward thinking and a way to ensure that we would have future funding to develop new curriculum initiatives and provide professional development to meet the needs of our 21st century learners.  With over $4 million in secured pledges, we continue to build on our momentum and garner widespread support from Summit residents.
