The Wisconsin Heights School District Endowment Fund (WHSDEF) is a donor-advised fund that has been established with the Madison Community Foundation (MCF). The purpose of the WHSDEF is to provide grants outside of the normal operating budget of the school district specifically for the development, implementation and evaluation of creative and innovative educational practices directly related to the Wisconsin Heights School District learning and outcomes. Examples of priorities that may be eligible for funding include, but are not limited to: (a) technology utilization; (b) interdisciplinary instruction; (c) arts integration; (d) community involvement; (e) global and cultural awareness; (f) environmental studies; (g) historical perspectives; (h) etc.… Again, money from the WHSDEF would be used to support learning related activities that extend the instruction provided in regular classroom settings.
Currently, the Endowment has secured donations thus far totaling $20,520 and a commitment from a private donor willing to match up to $50,000 in donations to the WHSDEF through May 1, 2017!The funding for the Endowment is dependent on donations from businesses, community members, employees and former employees along with Wisconsin Heights alumni. The WHSDEF Committee is asking you to consider a tax-deductible donation of any size. Help make a difference for current and future Wisconsin Heights students!
