Ashwaubenon Education Foundation
In the tradition of the Ashwaubenon School District, this granting program supports the development and continuation of innovative opportunities to enhance student experiences in order to help them develop as model community and world citizens. This granting program is not meant to replace ongoing public support of education, but funds opportunities, materials, and experiences that go beyond the School District budget. Grants will provide support in the areas of classroom, after-school, and co-curricular programs, technology, teacher training and student enrichment opportunities.
