Southern York County School District Foundation has Another Successful Year

Since 1997 the Southern York County School District Foundation has provided opportunities for scholarships, projects, equipment, and supplies for the benefit of students in the Southern York County School District. Even though the past year has been very different than normal, the Southern York County School District Foundation has a lot to be proud of this past year.  Please take a moment to read the Foundation's Anual Report for 2019-2020. Click here


“The Foundation donors continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students,” said SYCSD Foundation President Glenn Geiple. In 2019-2020, the Foundation received $184,000 from more than 800 donors. More than $124,000 was given in scholarships to 110 students. These scholarships were awarded to students in a virtual ceremony that was broadcasted live in May 2020. “A huge thank you to our donors for recording messages to our students that received scholarships. The messages were put together in a wonderful virtual program that was broadcast live the night of the scheduled event,” said SYCSD Foundation executive director Susan Green. The Foundation added six new scholarships and four newly endowed scholarships last year.

 

The Foundation also actively seeks grants and gifts for specific school district projects and supports programs that tax dollars do not fund. This year the Foundation gave $3,044 for seven innovative classroom grants to help make learning more fun.


At the November 19, 2020 School Board Meeting, Bruce Bauman, Board liaison to the Foundation, said “I give a big thank you to the school board directors. We are really blessed to have directors that are behind us.” School board president, Robert Schefter, responded “Our Foundation is recognized as one of the best in the state. Because of all of the things that the Foundation does for our students, we are very grateful for our relationship with them.”
