You Can make A Difference

The funds raised by the Foundation are granted to the schools and go towards things like:

  • Keeping class sizes small
  • Classroom materials and technology
  • Having additional coursework that may not be offered in a school of similar size
  • Teacher development/training and additional teaching specialists

The schools, teachers, and students appreciate any contributions our community members and parents can provide. Help us continue to support “Today’s Needs and Tomorrow’s Dreams!”

Everyone Counts.

Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference to every member of the Orono Community. Because of you, we are better together: fiercely committed to raising funds for today’s needs and tomorrow’s dreams.
