The perfect choice to celebrate and recognize educational success and excellence.
Twenty-five years ago Sedalia educators, school board members, and community leaders who cared deeply about the future of public education came together to find ways the community could play a greater role in helping the Sedalia School District #200. In October of 1995 the Sedalia School District Foundation was born. Those who launched the Foundation wanted the nonprofit organization to be a way to extend educational tools to staff and offer scholarships to students.
Today, the Sedalia School District Foundation, working with education, business and community leaders, continues to pursue new and exciting ideas in public education. We have great support from not only our community but the staff of the Sedalia #200. The Foundation currently manages over 38 scholarship funds that award over $60,000 annually to Sedalia #200 seniors in pursuit of post-secondary education. With endowed funds topping over one million dollars, hundreds of students have benefitted from these donor driven awards.
As we celebrate our 25th anniversary during these challenging times, we continue to focus on the importance of the students at the center of our mission. Contributions to the Sedalia School District Foundation will provide for future innovative opportunities. Please give generously in celebration of the vision of our founders and to build upon that vision to meet the changing needs of students.
