Foundation Year in Review 2023

Watch this video for a brief overview of the Elkhorn Public Schools programs, events & revenue generated at the events for our programs, and our alumni program.

Classroom Grants

The Foundation’s Golf Fore Grants Tournament on June 5, 2023, raised $55,000 for the classroom grants program. During this year’s tournament, we highlighted Laurie Davidson’s “Flip Flop Book Swap” classroom grant that gave each student at Westridge at least one book to take home over the summer vacation.

Laurie’s grant is just one of 76 EPSF Classroom Grants totaling $140,000 that were awarded at all 20 Elkhorn Public Schools during the 2023-2024 school year.

Scholarship Program

The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation continues to grow its Scholarship Program through Community Funded Scholarships and the ACHIEVE Scholarships. In the Spring of 2023, we awarded scholarships to Elkhorn Public Schools’ graduates worth over $550,000!

Currently, there are over 200 community-funded scholarships that will be awarded to EPS graduating seniors in 2024. The Foundation works with Elkhorn families and local businesses to award over $500,000 in scholarships every year. Applications for all EPSF scholarships are open from December 1st to February 1st, annually.

Math & Reading Intervention and Bids For Kids

The Elkhorn community helped the Foundation to raise over $71,000 at our annual Bids For Kids Auction in support of Math & Reading Intervention and Classroom Grants.

Foundation staff spoke with students and parents about the importance of Math & Reading Clubs! You can read more by following the link below.

When you first find out that your child might not be keeping up in class, it can be kind of devastating as a parent because you just want them to succeed, but what I love about the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation is that they’ve stepped in to fill that gap.”

– Angela Bell, Parent of student receiving after-school math help

Kids in Need

We provide financial assistance to Elkhorn families in need, ensuring financial hardships do not stand in the way of our students’ physical, social, and emotional needs or their ability to achieve success within our schools.

Teacher Tuition Reimbursement

We encourage our Elkhorn teachers and teacher assistants to prioritize their continued education by providing partial tuition reimbursement. The Foundation provides thousands of dollars in tuition reimbursement every year.

The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation is a non-profit organization that promotes student achievement and the unity of our community and its public schools by encouraging, supporting, and recognizing excellence in innovative education, quality school programs, and civic involvement.
