Central Bucks School District to Launch Educational Foundation
The Central Bucks School District is pursuing the development of an educational foundation to serve as an exclusive fundraising and community connections partner for the Central Bucks School District and its 23 schools, supporting initiatives outside the confines of the Board approved operating budget.
The Central Bucks School District Educational Foundation will function as a separate non-profit organization with its own board of directors. The goal will be to enhance the educational experience of Central Bucks students through support from the community, businesses and alumni, and will also include the establishment of an alumni association.
“The primary focus of this work is to provide increased access, opportunity and choice through supplemental funding for educational programs and initiatives that enrich students’ experiences across the district,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Abram M. Lucabaugh said.
“The Central Bucks community has always been an ally for our schools and students; the creation of an alumni association will not only promote the reunification of our community, but also develop a system of support that comes in many forms. We believe the establishment of an education foundation will provide our students with a premier educational experience that creates a foundation for future success,” he added.
Like similar organizations in neighboring school districts, the district’s foundation will support the goals of the district with both entities working cooperatively to create and sustain valuable educational programs, inventive and groundbreaking ideas that enrich classroom instruction, extra-curricular and co-curricular programs, facilities, and more. Fundraising will include a mix of grassroots efforts and long-range capital campaigns.
“Central Bucks graduates have gone on to excel in a multitude of careers and professional endeavors. The success of our graduates is a point of pride, and we are excited to collaborate in a manner that will engage families, community leaders and alumni, enabling students to benefit from the considerable expertise and opportunity that exists in Central Bucks, locally and beyond,” Dr. Lucabaugh explained.
Among the critical first steps of forming the foundation, the district is seeking qualified volunteers to serve on the organization’s inaugural board of directors. Community and business leaders from throughout the district are encouraged to consider serving in these important roles. Individuals interested in volunteering should contact the district’s director of communications and community relations, Angela Linch, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
