Message from the WE Foundation Board:
Thank you for your interest in our organization and your support of the students in the Windsor Unified School District. We are a group of volunteers with varied backgrounds who are dedicated to the enrichment of educational programs and opportunities within our schools. We believe that our community as a whole has a vested interest in the success of ALL our students’ education, and we wish to partner with businesses, individuals and groups in our local community to encourage and support our youth. Here is what we choose to focus our efforts on:
- Our Project HERO (Helping Everyone Receive Opportunities) is a coordinated effort to receive one-time or preferably recurring community donations to support targeted school projects which lack other funding sources.
- We fund varied amounts of grants for programs or projects at our schools through sponsor giving-level fundraising and proceeds from our annual gala dinner/dance/auction event.
- New this year – We will be raising funds with a Scholarship Breakfast event to fund college scholarships for graduating high school students who have chosen to further their education.
- We encourage people to register with business partners such as eScrip, AmazonSmile and the Oliver’s Market Community Card, where merchants donate a percentage of eligible purchases directly to charities. With these funds and other matching partner funds, we are able to give teachers gift cards for purchasing classroom supplies.
