Why should I give?

Philanthropy is a personal expression of compassion and gratitude for the things you are passionate about.  Whether funding a grant, creating a scholarship, or helping a child in need, your gift will advance education in Elkhorn.

As our district continues to grow and government support declines, your support is vital to ensure our students have the facilities and resources necessary for a quality education.  Join us in inspiring and supporting education by making a gift to the Elkhorn Public Schools through the Foundation.

How can I give?

There are many easy giving options from which to choose that will benefit the students and staff of the Elkhorn Public Schools.  Please contact us at 402.289.1727 to discuss your gift.

Are donations to the Foundation tax deductible?

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) corporation and, as such, gifts are tax deductible. Please consult with your tax advisor for more information regarding the eligibility of your deduction.

Will I receive an acknowledgement of my gift for tax purposes?

Your gift is appreciated! The Foundation sends a written acknowledgment of our gratitude that may be used to support appropriate tax deductions.  Please feel free to contact the Foundation if you need additional documentation.

Can I give a gift to a specific teacher/school through the Foundation?

Yes! Please contact us to discuss your gift ideas.  The needs of our schools are many; we can help you meet these needs while maximizing the benefits of your gift.
