The Appoquinimink Foundation was formed in 2010 to innovatively and independently support the educational goals of the Appoquinimink School District. The Foundation maintained 501-3(C) non-profit status in 2012. This allows groups and individuals the opportunity to make tax free donations to the educational process in the Appoquinimink School district and help meet the three major constituents of the local Educational system, The Student, The Educators and the Community.
The focus of the Appoquinimink School District is to provide a world-class education where each of our students gains the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes needed to contribute and flourish in a global society. Appoquinimink has a reputation in Delaware as one of the most successful districts in the state. The Appoquinimink Foundation’s focus will be to enhance the experience our youth have as they progress through their education not only while they are here but also, in the form of scholarships for higher education.
Educators are critically important to the success of our students. And yet, we all know they face budgetary constraints as they work to provide the world class education our students want and deserve. The Appoquinimink Foundation is dedicated to finding innovative means of support to educators through classroom grants and educator stipends for continuing education.
The socioeconomic and cultural health of our community is dependent upon the quality of our children’s education. Today’s students become tomorrow’s employees and leaders. To serve the student, support the educator in turn creates the future community we need to stay competitive in the World economy.
The Appoquinimink Foundation is here for The Students, The Educators and The Community. By working together, we will greatly enhance the educational experience and outcomes in the Appoquinimink School District.
