About Bids 4 Kids
Bids 4 Kids is an annual auction hosted by the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation. Last year, more than 400 donors helped support our fundraiser by attending the event and/or bidding by phone. Together, we were able to raise over $49,000 to help fund our Before/ After School Math and Reading Student Intervention Program.
In the 2019-2020 school year, over 500 elementary students were identified as needing additional teaching instruction in math and reading. With your generous support, we’re able to continue to help fund the additional teacher instructional time that students need to help improve their overall reading and math comprehension. Thank you!
