Learn Today. Lead Tomorrow.
Since 1981, the Williamston Schools Foundation has worked to enrich and enhance the quality of the educational experience of the children of the Williamston Community Schools. The foundation advances this ideal by making private funds available to the Williamston School District for specific projects.
The foundation focuses its resources on programs which will significantly improve education in mathematics, languages, science, social science, reading and writing skills, computer science and the arts. The foundation provides resources to facilitate this goal through development of innovative programs and the acquisition of new materials. Projects are initiated by administrators and the professional staff during grant cycles and reviewed by the WSF Grant Committee.
We do not support programs that are non-academic in nature, have significant support through other public or private sources or which are part of the expected responsibility of the publicly funded educational system. Examples of the kinds of projects the foundation is willing to support are the testing of experimental programs and materials in the schools, especially those focusing on STEM education; providing access to new resources such as computer and library additions; funding special programs for uniquely talented students; expanding course offerings by accessing new technology; and studying alternative means of learning improvement.

In order for us to help our educators take our students further on their journey of learning, we appreciate all donations and support.
The Williamston Schools Foundation has played a vital role in the success of many of our communities clubs and organizations. These amazing opportunities for myself and fellow students would not be possible without them.
