Donating to the Annual Fund means you are supporting a yearly grant given to the school district that is used to address the most pressing educational priorities. This fund helps support a variety of activities and programs including:
- Teacher positions to maintain smaller class sizes,
- Advanced placement curriculum,
- STEM programs,
- World language offerings,
- Academic based service learning experiences, and
- Character program enhancements.
Since 2000, the Orono Foundation for Education’s Annual Fund has raised over $6 million for the Orono School District to maintain reasonable class size and enhance curricular options for students. Every gift, no matter what its size, makes a difference. Most donations are less than $1000, but together the donations to the Annual Fund make a substantial difference for the schools and students.
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.
