Education is and has always been a top priority of our society and for good reason. Without a well-rounded and challenging education, our children will be hard pressed to lead our nation into the future and compete for jobs in the global marketplace.
Funding for education in North Dakota currently comes from property taxes, state and federal resources. While these funds are usually adequate for meeting most of the District's basic needs, there is typically little money, if any, available to allow for innovative or cutting edge educational programs and projects - the kind of programs and projects that challenge teachers to take their students to the next level of learning and encourage students to push themselves to higher academic achievements.
The Fargo Public Schools Development Foundation can and will bridge that gap. The Foundation works to secure a variety of resources to enrich and enhance the quality of education provided by the Fargo Public Schools. Our educational grants and programs enrich children's lives, helping them to grow, learn and enter the world more confident and better prepared to compete in the 21st century.
No matter how the Foundation evolves in the years to come, we will always strive to uphold the highest standards of good stewardship and accountability. We intend to not only be a model public school foundation, but one of the most efficient and effective non-profit organizations anywhere. Your support is important to us, and we believe our donors deserve no less.
