Apollo $2000 Grant

At the Foundation, we believe in assisting the Daviess County Public School in providing the highest quality learning environment possible for all 11,700+ children by providing educational enhancement opportunities not paid for by taxes.

Watch this Foundation VIDEO to get an overview of what we do.

We build partnerships with local businesses so they can help teachers enhance education for DCPS students. Some partnership are mentoring based, some are financial based (our event sponsors and Business Founders) and some combine the two (First Generation Scholars).

We strive to remain flexible, matching student and teacher needs with community resources.

We work with business and corporate donors to match their community investment requirements with district needs.

We reward innovation and creativity in our schools in our FOCUS areas of HEALTH, LITERACY, TECHNOLOGY and GREAT EXPECTATIONS through yearly $1000 Focus Award grants.

The Foundation's Wish List asks teachers and staff for their classroom 'wishes' and gives benefactors the opportunity to grant wishes to our schools.

The Foundation's Grants Committee researches and applies for grants in partnership with teachers and staff in the DCPS system.
