Welcome to Edgemont School Foundation
After several failed school budget referendums in the early 1990's, many Edgemonters desired a vehicle that could create and finance new and alternative school programs and maintain the District's tradition of excellence. Founded in 1993, Edgemont School Foundation, through its endowment, awards monetary grants that support and enhance the Edgemont School District's curriculum, students, and teachers. Since its inception, Edgemont School Foundation has granted over $2.2 Million to the Edgemont School District for programs that have improved the curriculum, modernized facilities, and enhanced the educational experience of all Edgemont students. Edgemont School Foundation is a fully qualified IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity. Learn more about Edgemont School Foundation. Learn More About Edgemont School Foundation
