The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation recognizes its scholarship recipients at an annual Scholarship Recognition Breakfast held at each of the high schools at the end of April. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 breakfasts were canceled.
In June, the Foundation awarded $404,750 in scholarships to Elkhorn’s graduating seniors, recognizing their academic, athletic, and personal achievements.
On July 6, 2020, over 175 participants, volunteers, and sponsors gathered for a day of golf, games, and fun at Champions Run Golf Course for our 21st annual Golf Fore Grants Tournament. Together, we raised over $43,000 for Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation Classrooms Grants Program.
Elkhorn Public Schools (EPS) employees generously give back to the Foundation each year through the Foundation’s “TEAM” campaign (Together Everyone Achieves More). This annual district-wide employee donation campaign is held in August and September of each year.
During the 2020-2021 school year, EPS employees generously raised more than $50,000 in support of Foundation programs!
Although COVID-19 disrupted our plans to hold a live fundraising event last spring, the Elkhorn community came together (virtually) in September 2020 and raised over $36,000 to help fund Math & Reading Intervention Programs for Elkhorn Public Schools.
Each fall, the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation hosts its Hall of Fame Reception where we honor teachers, school staff, Elkhorn alumni, volunteers, and community businesses. Due to COVID-19, we have indefinitely postponed this year’s celebration; however, we will be honoring our 2020 recipients next year at our 2021 Hall of Fame Celebration.
