Golf Fore Grants
Golf Fore Grants is a vital component to the success of our Classroom Grants Program which provides additional funding for Elkhorn’s kindergarten through high school classrooms. In the past, these grants have provided funding for additional innovative educational STEAM items such as ClearTouch interactive displays, coding activities, reading assistance programs, robotics equipment, and much more!
In June 2023, over $55K was raised during the event, making it an incredibly successful Golf Fore Grants fundraiser!
TEAM Campaign is an annual fundraiser where Elkhorn Public Schools staff donate to the Foundation to help fund Classroom Grants, Scholarships, Teacher Tuition Reimbursement, and more.

Bids For Kids
Bids For Kids is an annual fundraiser that takes place every fall. Proceeds from this event fund Foundation programming, including the Math & Reading Clubs that take place in the Elkhorn District’s elementary schools before and after school. Formally known as “Math and Reading Intervention,” these clubs help students gain confidence through small group tutoring and improve their overall math and reading comprehension.
In September 2022, over $74K was raised during the event, making it the most successful Bids For Kids fundraiser to date!
